Sandra Cristina Duarte

Was born in Praia da Granja in 1971. After taking some degrees and training programs, among which Fine Arts, Jewellery, Illustration, Stained Glass, Pottery, Tile Painting and Fusing, she came to the realization that Glass was her undeniable passion. This raw material, due to its colours, brightness, purity and recycling nature was perfect and made all the sense to her. Over these last 20 years, she mastered the technique and now makes such different and versatile artworks. 

In the beginning she made signature pieces: from jewels, saints and nativity scenes to whatever her imaginary could conceive. Nowadays her huge success in the Portuguese market is such that hundreds of stores sell her works. Her Curriculum comprises several awards but BEST FIL ARTWORK, in Lisbon, might be pointed out. She has made countless exhibitions all around Portugal and her client portfolio is highly diverse, including collectors, companies, state organizations, museums, and several others around the world.
