Intro
Federica Sala is a jewellery artist who lives and works in Milan, Italy. After finishing the studies in design at Politecnico di Milano, she got the MFA from Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence. Her work is deeply based on a scientific approach to materials that she manipulates to create new delicate jewellery sculptures that due to their fragility captures all the attention and sensibility of the wearer. Her MFA project was nominated for the Stanislav Libensky Award 2015 and She exhibited at Mad Museum in New York, American Glass Weekend, The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston and Chicago SOFA.
 

Statement

Art is not a copy of the real world; one of the damn thing is enough.
/Virginia Woolf


There’s a reality to discover, in which everything is possible and looks exactly the opposite of what we know. We’re part of an illusion that we daily contribute to build. We all are liers and we’ve built up a cage of lies that we like to live since we’ve become used to. It seems we feel comfortable in our ignorance and superficiality. We’ve stopped looking for truth and we’ve stopped imaging.  My work is the expression of the need to discover something hidden, going beyond appearance. I want to rise questions about our perception of reality. In order to do so, I grasp the only certainty I have: Science.  Like a scientist, I study the properties of materials to create something never seen before: new bodies, new entities that belong to another possible world. I turn them into delicate jewellery pieces that need to be handled with care and once on the body, you can’t think about something except them. My pieces want to make people change their perspective, rising a much more gentle and sensitive perception of themselves and of the surroundings as a consequence.
