I create work for a variety of contexts and sell through galleries and by commission. My work includes sculptural objects as well as more obviously functional pieces such as lighting and screens.
I trained in Fine Art and stained glass originally. Later I gained an M.A. in Fine Art which benefitted my painting style and also gave me confidence in modern glass design.After working in glass at Central St.Martins, I am now using enamels and I work with kinectic glass sculpture also.
Montserrat Duran Muntadas began her specialization in glass in 2001 in the "Escola del Vidre" of Barcelona, and then continues her studies in the "Real Fabrica de Vidrios of Segovia", Spain.
In 2009, she completed her degree in Fine Arts in Barcelona University. From that moment she created her own glass jewelry collections as well as sculptures, wearable pieces and art installations.
