ABOUT THE ARTIST

Agustina Ros is an artist who seeks to combine, through glass, the sensitivity of art and the resolution of design. She was born in Misiones, Argentina. Now, she currently resides in Barcelona, Spain, where she opened her own studio with international projection.

Her jewelry is crafted with borosilicate glass, modeled and blown by the technique of flameworking. Some pieces are worked with fine metal fuming (gold and silver), and carved and polished, which generates a faceted surface, looking for light reflection. Today, she is developing her own product and art design line with a neon technique called “plasma”, with state-of-the-art equipment.

For a constant exploration, she collaborates with other artists and designers from Institutes such as the IAAC, Royal College of Art, Central Saint Martins and European Studios of architecture and design. From her Atellier “Barcelona Glass Studio”, Agustina seeks to generate glass culture, and spread it to the artistic and fashion scene.
