Patrizia Bonati

Bonati’s work is typically  Italian in the use of materials, as she mostly avails herself of gold. She creates her own alloys producing interesting colour variations. Emblematic of her work is the flexible metal and springy wire obtained by means of hammering and twisting techniques. She often incorporates white enamel into her pieces, complimenting the gold surface of the metal. She is drawn to the concept of movement and trasformation, and likes the idea anything can charge.

A necklace can become a bracelet, an earring can become a brooch, a ring can become a bracelet. There is a primordial nature in her work conveyed by the matt finish, texture and colour of her pieces. She is mainly drawn to circles, but these are usually irregular in shape and never perfectly round. All these elements convey jewellwery that is contemporary in its approach, yet reaches back in time and makes reference to the past.

“The golden thread which I obtain, thanks to the yellow-grey golden league, allows me to create flexible forms, both geometric forms such as the circle or free forms, which can be modified thanks to the flexibility of the thread itself. The golden plate has the same flexible characteristics obtained through a hammering work. The possibility of using the same object in different ways reflects the concept of movement and transformation which I intend to express with my art”. (Patrizia Bonati)
