“Battuto is a style, a maneer, a tool of expression”
Monica Guggisberg (1955) and Philip Baldwin (1947) met each other during a glass school in Sweden.
Couple in life and couple for work, they blow glass for more than over 35 years and are known all over the world for their vessels of large size in blown glass carved with « battuto » technique.
