Internationally renowned artists Laura de Santillana and Alessandro Diaz de Santillana were the stars of the show at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, where they showcased their latest glassmaking exhibition.

The Venice-based siblings are descendants of the Venini glassware dynasty, established by Paolo Venini on the island of Murano in 1921.

This latest exhibition was launched in the Park’s recently refurbished 18th century chapel on April 30th and will continue until September 2015.

Both artists honed their skills at Venini during their early careers and went on to develop their own styles.
