Born in Rome, Valentina Cameranesi Sgroi currently lives in Milan where she works as art director and set designer. Having studied Industrial Design in Milan, Sgroi found herself mostly interested in research and imagery and it wasn’t until 2017 that Sgroi’s journey into glass truly began, having created a display of vessels that led to a sizable commission of champagne and wine glasses of her own designs.
Sgroi’s work reveals many sources of inspiration, from ancient Rome, to the Wiener Werkstatte, to props used in fantasy and horror films of the 1980s.
Glass is not the only medium through which Sgroi has expressed her artistic capabilities, having designed and produced digital printed silk, jacquard textiles, laminated tables, and ceramic vessels.
