I have been a goldsmith for over twenty-five years in Modena, Italy. Since I was a young man, I’ve been interested and attracted to metals and it’s infinite capabilities, especially it’s overlapping, oxidation, and sequences of layers. With my work, I try to transfer every day emotions into contemporary jewelry and unique pieces in a simple, informal and spontaneous way. This permits me to develop new situations and the art appreciators to develop feelings from these situations. My goal is to move from the concept of simple jewelry, to a larger concept of sculpture and art piece.
I utilize antique and unique goldsmith techniques, such as NIELLO and GRANULATION, personalizing them in order to distinguish my work from others. I work with precious metals combining them with other metals such as iron, copper and brass. My jewelry is usually finished by material textured, which hides to the naked eye the precious metals. As a painter uses his canvas to express his or her feelings, I use my jewelry as base for expressing mine.
