Artist list

Barbara Uderzo
Open doors day of The Blob House: the studio of artist-designer Barbara Uderzo obtained in a former factory of the first decades of the 1900's, in Milan. Here, in via S. Francesco d'Assisi, a few steps away from the Duomo basilica, have found a house the Blob Rings and other jewels (Bijoux-Chocolat, Chains, Succulent Rings, Paper Jewels, etc…). They describe the twenty years of artistic research and experimentation of this artist from Vicenza.

Blob rings are made in silver and coloured plastics and incorporate symbolic micro-objects from contemporary life. Barbara works the magmatic and coloured plastics in an experimental way, recreating casual shapes around a silver ring. During the years Barbara Uderzo has created small “families” of Blob rings on specific themes.

*The collection’s name comes from the title of a science fiction cult movie of the Fifties, “The Blob”, whose main character is a strawberry-like jelly which invades the Earth and swallows everything and everyone it finds on its way.
