Artist Statement

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).
