Both Cesare Toffolo's grandfather and father were master glassblowers. He often visited his father's studio and learned flameworking at the age of 15. He currently continues to create hand blown glass objects that are exhibited in international museums, galleries, and private collections, and he teaches glassblowing methods all over the world. The studio now includes four generations, with the addition of Cesare's son, Emanuel Toffolo, who creates exquisite glass insect compositions.
