Luis Parades was born in Asturias, Spain and has worked with glass as a medium since 2003. He studied the art of glass-blowing and other techniques at Real Fabrica de Vidrios en la Granja San Idelfonso, Segovia and had his first solo show in Paris 2008. Having already won several awards, among which was obtaining the first design award Getxo (Bilbao) and the second single piece prize "La Rosaleda Artisans" (Oviedo, 2007), Luis is fast gaining recognition and acclaim for his work.
Captured in glass, each one-of-a-kind piece of work is handmade by Luis using expert glass-blowing techniques, including hot melting, thermos-forming, casting and engraving. Suspended in time, air bubbles and ripples form organic designs that are entirely unique and inspired by urban dwellings and the lost, underwater city of Atlantis.
