Study of luminescent glass and luminescent enamels
My area of professional development can be characteristic in Contemporary artistic glass, with a relation between art and science (with a special interest on the Study of luminescent glass and luminescent enamels. This topic was the subject of my PhD and Postdoctoral research,) with integration of crafts (Some of my works I have assistance of craft makers, as the stained glass produce at Antunes workshop for Museu do Vitral).

How would you best describe your workspace and what tools could you not do without?
At the moment I am an Art professor teaching glass at the university and working with glass techniques – kiln casting (casting and pâte-de-verre) and also stained glass, participating in exhibition, making commissions for private and public places and giving workshops about glass craft art.

Creative, interrogative, researching, connecting
How many stone fragments create a mosaic? How many memories craft a human? How many human stories craft the world? The mosaic is often used as a metaphor for the social condition osmosis of many, different, random assemblages within an often landscaped cultural urban diversity.
I use imagery and mark-making on ceramic vessels to express my own formative experiences. The tone of my narratives is psychologically complex and often influenced by unconscious processes.
In short, how do we move through the world, and what guides us.
I practice colour and material design – and research my design practice
