Atelier - The Author
"... My name is Monica Faverio, I introduce myself as a glass creator. I work this material in multiple ways, glass melting (fusing) and stained glass are the methods that I often use. In the glass melting at times I use the thermoformed (slumping) method and the lost wax fusing method, that for its complexity requires the creation of unique pieces often extremely elaborate."
