05 Feb Profile as Alumni in Welsh College
Bianca Divito was born in Ireland and studied in the Glass Department of Swansea Institute’s Welsh School of Architectural Glass (now Swansea College of Art).
After she completed her BA Honours degree in Architectural Glass she was awarded the prestigious Award of Excellence from the Worshipful Company of Glaziers and Painters of Glass in London which afforded her the opportunity to train in a host of leading glass studios across the U.K and Germany.
She established her practice in a studio in Ireland in 2006 and has since been working on a variety of commissions to design and install original glass art in private homes and public spaces, as well as conservation of priceless church stained glass. Recognising her innovation in glass art and for the creation of bespoke features for gardens, the Royal Horticultural Society invited Divito to exhibit at the world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show in 2012. Her “Glass Garden” created in conjunction with Damien Keane Garden Design was awarded one of the top accolades in show.
