Andrew Iannazzi is interested in iconic design language and imagery. He draws from historical Italian and Scandinavian design as well as American popular imagery. Glassblowing is the perfect medium for the investigation of these issues. Iannazzi uses his objects to explore functionality, form, and iconic representations. Iannazzi uses off-hand blowing and traditional mold-blowing techniques. Iannazzi began glassblowing at Hartwick College in Oneonta, New York.
