Silvana Ferrario is an award winning glass artist currently residing in Perth, Western Australia. She says her inspiration comes from her experiences, memories and surroundings. Her experience as a sub-sea engineer and scuba diver speaks to much of her work, but since working from her glass studio in the hills, the rural surroundings also inform her work. Having studied mathematics, she is also intrigued by the geometry present in both man made and naturally occurring structures, and its opposition to the fluidity of the natural elements. Her work makes use of the movement arising from the fluidity of the glass when it is hot.
