Meet the Artist – Silvio Vigliaturo
We are honoured that contemporary Italian master Silvio Vigliaturo has long been a feature in the Collier & Dobson portfolio of both sculpture and original art.His vibrant pieces are technically highly sophisticated, in terms of glass making and brushwork, whilst satirical and witty in nature, which together create a strong visual impact.
A Brief History of Father's Day
This day of celebration for fatherhood is said to date back to the early 1500s when the Catholic Church supported its celebration on Saint Joseph's Day, otherwise known as 'The Feast of Saint Joseph'. The day reveres the "Nourisher of the Lord" (as referred to in Catholicism) or "the putative father of Jesus" (as known in Southern European tradition), and so was a fitting time to mark appreciation for Fathers.
