Renato is a glass artist in Kitchener, Ontario. After he graduated from programs in fine arts and engineering, Renato worked as a professional engineer. He was introduced to glass sculpture early in his career, and was drawn to its inherent capacity for the exploration of “perception”. Renato states that after viewing glass sculpture, “the human trait of perception will come into play, linking the sculptured object with a time and place, to an emotion, a question, and finally a perception of what is real”. He continues to exhibit his works in sculptured and cast glass across North America.
