We had the good fortune of connecting with Anthony Bianco and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Anthony, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I felt I didn’t have many options for representation when I was starting out. When I opened Bianco Light & Space it felt like the only way I could combine my skills into a studio practice. Until then glass had been a 9-5 grind and the only career seemed to be getting in a, “glass gallery.”
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Im not wired to do the same thing day in day out. Im proud to say that we produce everything in house. In my experience making things by hand can be humbling but it can also deliver a lasting sense of fulfillment and purpose.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My lovely wife and business partner, Alicia Reina. She is the wind in my sails.
