Vanessa Mitrani has developed a prolific career since 1998, as a respected designer and an expert in her medium. She has experimented with multiple substances to pair with glass, and essentially settled on metal. She has continued to move forward with her designs by deciding to manage all aspects of the development of her pieces. While many designers stick to the design only, Mitrani has taken over the design, production, and distribution of her work. She launched her Dark Collection in 2011.
