    Art Brokerage: Miriam Di Fiore Argentinean Glass Artist: Miriam Di Fiore was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1959. When Miriam was 5, her family moved to Marimar, a little town near the ocean. In Argentina Miriam obtained a degree in Pottery and art education. In 1980 Miriam moved to Italy and in 1985, she was able to open her own studio. It was in Milan, where she used to make ceramic and where she begun my first experiments with glass. Miriam experimented with all kind of work: fusing, making little objects, designing large architectural pieces doors and windows. Meeting Narciso Quagliata was the turning point in her career. He widened my horizons and taught me the possibilities of the light painting technique. Playing with frits and stringers, between 1997 and 1999 Miriam developed her own technique, adding the effect of depth to her pieces. In 1999 Miriam showed her pieces for the first time in Murano. That is where the owners of Mostly Glass saw it and invited Miriam the following year to exhibit at SOFA Chicago. Since then, both Mostly Glass Gallery and Habatat Galleries exhibit her Work in the US. Miriam's technique is a long and tedious process that combines soft flame working, fusing and multiple firings, all for the same piece. Miriam begins to build the landscape from the part that is in the background (horizon). The trees and the branches are glass stringers modeled in the flame. Miriam uses glass frits like other artists use water color. Miriam sifts the frits in a way to have at least nine sizes of glass grains. When the background of an image is set, Miriam fuses it through firing in the kiln. After the first firing, Miriam covers it with a thin sheet of clear glass, and build over that the next part of the image. The process is repeated over and over till all the landscape is created.
