As a teacher and mentor he has played a key role in the international exchange of glassblowing processes and techniques between the principal American centers and his native Murano. In 1979-80, he taught at Dale Chihuly's Pilchuck Glass School. In the 1980s, Tagliapietra transitioned from production pieces to creating individual pieces of art as an independent studio artist.
