Artists    Silvana Ferrario

Silvana has worked with glass (lead light, copper foil and mosaics) since 1997. At this time, it was a mental release to her day job as a subsea engineer. She started working in fused glass around 2009 and took a Glass Sculpture unit at ECU. She has attanded numerous courses with renowned glass artists and has had pieces in a number of exhibitions.

Silvana won the emerging artist Award at MAGE 2014, Mainsfield Victoria. She is also a finalist in the Tom Malone competition in 2017.

Her inspiration comes from her experiences, memories and surroundings, particularly her affinity to water. Her pieces make use of the glass's properties when hot and molten and also its transparency. The pieces are made using various techniques. Different compositions are made using glass powder, glass sheet and frit, then fired to 800 deg C. They are then cut, joined, more glass added, refused, polished and then slumped to form the final pieces.Silvana particularly likes to ensure the use of fluidity of the glass when it is hot and mobile in many of her works.
