Albino Miranda

Born in 1967 in the midst of a humble family, Albino Miranda always did stand out for his creativity and aptitude for the art.

After working with several companies mainly in the field of ceramic, in which he has always stood out for his talent as sculptor, it’s in the 90s with the ambition to grow professionally on his own and taking sculpture as passion, that he starts a possible project that comes later to be Albino Miranda, Ltd.

Starting with a small space at home, he made his sculptures out of a composite stone invented by him and his project started growing. Always following the market needs, the business would eventually be extended to other types of stone, wood and custom finishes.

He currently develops his projects in fiberglass, material with which he intends to work from now on, due to its mechanical properties and design flexibility.
