Silvana developed a passion for glass over the years, progressing from lead-lighting to fusing and casting. She uses a range of techniques that she has learnt and developed, often making use of the movement arising from the fluidity of the glass when it is hot.
Her inspiration comes from her experiences, memories, and surroundings. This varies from the ocean inspired pieces reflecting her experience as a subsea engineer and scuba diver, to pieces inspired by her rural setting in the hills, and work reflecting memories of when she was young. With her scientific background, she also likes to investigate the geometry present in both manmade and naturally occurring structures, and the opposition to the fluidity of the natural elements.
