Statement

Marchetti describes himself as a combination of goldsmith, sculptor, technical innovator and teacher. Stefano has revisited a number of themes over the course of his career, including a floating cylindrical form that he refers to as looking like the drum of a washing machine. Another series of pieces are created through the chemical erosion of silver, leaving just the golden skeleton of a piece – “The process of erosion is similar to that of putrification” he explains. “The pieces are made in gold and silver and then the etching bath removes the silver. As with photography you cannot see the result until the end – I had to work like a blind sculptor."
