The studio is dedicated to the design and craftsmanship of glass-blowing, glass-cutting, kiln-working, contemporary jewellery, archaeological objects and reproductions of ancient glass. Their production is defined by the originality of the designs, the quality of execution and the final assembly of the parts.
