Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, I immigrated to Canada in 2003. I'm inspired by the beauty of the waterscapes, which surround me and by my Jewish faith. The tranquility and peace that glass offers is a serene environment where my imagination can flourish. The creative process demands a great deal of technical skill combined with an emotional sensitivity to the material.
My artwork has been sold around the world and is a part of several public and private collections.
Beauty, simplicity, elegance and functionality are essential components in my designs. In my studio in Toronto I'm always looking for that special blend of colour and texture that leads me to each piece of art I carefully design.
The way I treat glass is as if it were a human being, by respecting it and not pushing it. This allows me to understand its flow, displacement, behavior, and action up to its most intricate inner part – its core. That is why I always say: “Each time a piece leaves my studio I feel a little bit of my soul is going with it”.
