Recognised as one of the greatest glass blowers of his generation, Novaro maintains a portfolio of top-tier clients that include Prince Albert II of Monaco, Sheikh Tariq Al Qassimi, Robert De Niro, Bill Cosby, Mike Tyson and Phillippe Monet. He has also earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest hand blown coupe ever made.
