Artist: Agustina Ros
Title: Ambar ringlet earings
Technique: earrings – blown borosilicate glass, silver
Born in Argentina and based in Barcelona, Agustina Ros seeks to combine, through glass, the sensitivity of art and the resolution of design.
She makes wearable art using borosilicate glass, modeled and blown through the technique of flameworking, and vaporizes noble metals, like gold and silver, to dye the glass with shades that naturally fade. To generate textures, she employs coldworking techniques such as engraving and faceting. Inspired by the ways in which the past formed the present and defines the future, Ros creates contemporary jewelry and unique pieces of art and design that are minimal, simple yet complex.
