Silvia Benincaso - A Modernist's approach where Venice meets Phoenix


Born in Padova, Italy, Silvia grew up surrounded by the Murano glass artistry from the neighboring city of Venice.  Her travels ultimately brought her to Arizona, where her love of glass art continued to grow as she admired the work of American artists.  Silvia pursued her métier at the Mesa Arts Center, Phoenix Center for the Arts, Milkweed Arts and the Bullseye Resource Center in Santa Fe. Her drive to learn different techniques brought her to master classes with several known artists.  Silvia has taken from the best to develop her own style where all her influences come together to form her work. Her company's name "glassamorphosis" symbolizes Silvia's journey from one lifestyle to another just as glass is an amorphous solid.
