Future is a therapy for each expectation and each desire to evolve incessantly.

Do you think thatjewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
I think that human being is more standardized from easily persuadable and vulnerable modern society than jewellery. Nothing is local, everything is universal.

What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
Each exhibition has its own expectations and it’s important to create a dialogue between the visitor and the author’s work, transmitting a critic sense that is essential for the artist growth. The aim is to make the spectator active.

Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
I’m very close to the design world and contemporary architecture.

The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was...
A film, The Tree of Life by Terrence Malick, where macrocosm is compared to microcosm. It’s a container full of emotions and perceptions living inside and outside us.

A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
Each place, space or country has its own creativity to tell.

Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
Zaha Hadid, for her uncommon creativity.

What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
The word ‘satisfaction’ is for me an incessant research.

Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
Nothing in particular, but I often use internet.

Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes, I do. I’s important to take different opinions looking from other points of view.

What is your first thought when you hear the word Future?, What do you expect for?
Future is a therapy for each expectation and each desire to evolve incessantly.
