UNDER THE RADAR BIANCA DIVITO:
GROWING UP, Bianca Divito’s claim to fame may have been that she was a distant relation of the diminutive film star of the same surname but these days, the Co Wicklow native is making a name for herself in her own right.
She has just picked up an excellence in enterprise award in the emerging category from Wicklow County Enterprise Board for her achievements with her fledgling business, Divito Studios.
The award-winning architectural art glass designer specialises in glass commissions, art glass sales and conservation and restoration of historic stained glass at her studio in Arklow Enterprise Centre.
As well as working on major glass conservation projects including St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin and Canterbury Cathedral, Divito’s work can also be seen at Indus, a restaurant in Drogheda and as far afield at the Guest Palace in Oman.
