The love of art is what pulses life through designer Fide Durben. To Fide, life is one big love affair. A native of Teno, Chile, Fide has always found her greatest happiness in the act of creating. Her appetite for life has led Fide to zestfully pursue many walks.
She moved to the Chilean capitol, Santiago to work in fashion design. She later started in glasswork through a class at the Bemis School of Art here in Colorado Springs. After seeing Dale Chihuly’s pieces at the Fine art Center she became truly inspired and decided to continue her education in galsswork. Mixing her new-found love of glass with jewelry design came naturally for Fide and blended well with her career in the fashion design industry.
