“As a child I was mesmerized by my father's stained glass creations and the play of light prisms. Over the past ten years my creative journey has been to combine glass and crystal to make art glass which blends the aesthetic and personal. My pieces are necessarily timeless, but always alive and relevant.” -Bianca Divito
