Maria Eugenia Diaz de Vivar (Buenos Aires, 1974), took her first steps in the world of creativity, in the career of Fine Arts, during the nineties. First ventured into painting, inherited the art of embroidery from the women of his family, and pursued the career of Art History and Jewelry.
In 2000 she decided to settle in Barcelona, with her husband and two daughters. There, while looking to reconcile the upbringing with working life, she fell in love with the city, the architecture, the stained glass windows and modernism, among other cultural expressions that she appreciated in her travels through Europe.
In 2006 she returned to Buenos Aires, where she began to train in courses of stained glass, fusion, lampwork and glass sculpture. This fantastic material caught her completely and motivated her to investigate the latest in glass art in the world.
It was then that she began to collect information on the subject and thats how Objetos con Vidrio was born. Since 2007, the blog shares the work of contemporary artists and reflects the activity of artisans, artists, architects and designers, empowering the sector through events.
In recent years she made study trips to Spain, Canada and the United States. She gave lectures at Espace Verre (the Glass School of Montreal), and at the Glass Conference in Andorra, Spain.
With her research she collaborates permanently with the Department of Glass I and II: Arq. Carlos Servat, within the framework of the Department of Visual Arts of the National University of Art (UNA), in Buenos Aires.
She was part of the advisory council of the Glass Foundation of Barcelona and was a columnist in the online publication Vidrioh! of the FCVB. She also collaborated in the I Iberoamerican Glass Biennial of MAVA - Alcorcon, Madrid.
Her love for glass allowed her to meet passionate people and discover creative refuges and life stories.
Today her work aims to generate new spaces to make visible the work and craft of glass craftsmen from all over the world, as well as to open up a dialogue with those who want to join in order to promote an art in full growth.
