Versatility in glass

  • • Bianca and Daniel studied at the Vetroricerca Glas&modern school
  • • They have worked in important glass regions in Europe
  • • They set up their glass studio 40 Plumas together

Bianca Rebagliati and Daniel Orquín both attended the Vetroricerca Glas&modern school for artistic glass work in Italy. Previously, Bianca had a summer job in a small stained glass workshop on the border between Italy and Switzerland, and Daniel had taken on the mission to start a department of glass fusing in a traditional manufacturer in Bergamo. They chose this discipline because they feel the need to create projects, and glasswork allows them to materialise their creativity and designs. Their workshop, one of the most modern and versatile in Spain, is a lab where new techniques find a way to make any idea become a reality. Yet, 40 plumas is simultaneously a traditional workshop and both Bianca and Daniel remain conscious of the importance of the true craftsmanship of handmade.
