The research is based on the relation between different materials and on how they can converse and enhance each other. The contrast is essential, organic shapes combined with simple figures, poor materials with pre-cious ones, light with darkness. Creating a suggestion in the observer without using figurative elements provokes a wider range of possibilities and reflections. For this reason the creation process becomes extremely important, the spontaneity of the form and the com-position are fundamental, the imperfection becomes strength and the fragment infuses a feeling of completeness.
The jewel is born from the transformation of wood into charcoal, the metamorphosis of the material imparts value to the object, telling a story of unleashed shape shifting potential.
It all starts with the choice of material and its metamorphosis. This charcoal comes from my family’s vineyard called RESTERA. The jewellery I make is the story of my land and my origins.
