Valeria Florescano

Valeria Florescano is a glass artist and jewelry designer based in Mexico City. Her work explores glass as a symbol, material, ritual and light,  alongside other materials that can be transformed through fire. Her backgrounds, both as a graphic designer and as part of a family of historians, has been crucial to her development as a glass artist. This material, whose own structure does not fit a category easily, being neither liquid nor solid, in many ways it is an ideal medium to ponder on a lack of categorization.

Her work has been exhibited in reknown spaces in Mexico as well as abroad including Poglos Gallery in Poland (2015), THINK TWICE a collective jewelry exhibition at Franz Meyer Museum (2014) and she has also collaborated with Mexican designer Carla Fernández (2010).
