About the Artist

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Agustina Ros is a 26 year old ar tist who seeks to combine, through glass,
the sensitivity of ar t 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 􀀂ne metal fuming (gold and silver), and carved
and polished, which generates a faceted sur face, looking for light re􀀁ection.
Today, she is developing her own product and ar t design line with a neon technique called «plasma», with
state-of-the-ar t equipment.
For a constant exploration, she collaborates with other ar tists and designers from Institutes
such as the IAAC, Royal College of Ar t, Central Saint Mar tins and European Studios of architecture and design.
From her Atellier “Barcelona Glass Studio”, Agustina seeks to generate glass culture, and spread it to the ar tistic
and fashion scene.
