Description

"The imagery of life in my mind is many faceted: overlaid visions, memories, objects, experiences, feelings and movement – which go to make up a rich tapestry to my work."

Silvana Ferrario has worked in 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 in 2009 and took a Glass Sculpture unit at Edith Cowan University.

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.

Silvana's pieces are made using various techniques. Different compositions are made using glass powder, glass sheet and frit, and then fused to 800oC. They are then cut, joined, more glass added, refused, polished and then slumped to form the final pieces. She particularly like to ensure she uses the fluidity of the glass when it is hot and mobile in many of her works.

Silvana has attended numerous courses with renowned glass artists and had pieces in a number of exhibitions. She won the Emerging Artist Award at MAGE 2014, Mansfield Victoria. She is also a finalist in the Tom Malone competition in 2017.
