Intro
(...) Metals, with their potential to contain and transport meanings, are at the center of my research. Without a pretext of scientific nature, I use constructive procedure as a flywheel that drives the discipline itself. In my works the technique becomes a tool for investigating a potential “language of metal” into which I translate what my intimate experiences lead me to describe and evoke. (...)
Giving shape to a jewel is quite simple, first a dialog between fire and material needs to be established, and then the conversation must be forced to our own personal opinions.

I chose to use "fire techniques" as the tool, and precious metals as the material. For this reason and for the fact that my works are worn, I can consider myself a goldsmith. Goldsmith, however, is an imprecise and ambiguous term to define my profession, because I would feel like a goldsmith even if I made hand blown glass vases.

Metals, with their potential to contain and transport meanings, are at the center of my research. Without a pretext of scientific nature, I use constructive procedure as a flywheel that drives the discipline itself. In my works the technique becomes a tool for investigating a potential “language of metal” into which I translate what my intimate experiences lead me to describe and evoke.

In the course of this workshop I should like to address this poetic with you, analysing one of my favourite technical procedures: “micromosaic in metal”.
