Lucia Santini was born in Murano to a family that has been making glass for 600 years. She learned to paint on glass from her mother and grandmother, and began her career as a glassmaker in the workshops of Murano. She now lives in Venice, and enjoys collaborating with lampwoeker Lucio Bubacco and with her brother, Emilio Santini.

Santini’s works are exhibited at the Litvak Gallery in Tel Aviv, Habatat Gallery in Florida, and the CFM Gallery in New York. She has taught workshops around the world.
