Bio

I live and work in the North-East of Italy and my background includes, apart from a Masters degree in English language and literature, a qualified training in ceramics  as well as non academic studies in silversmithing. . After a few years of experimentation with Limoges porcelain, I have started to test and then use many different materials, seeking for unexpected aesthetics and low impact on the environment . My work has been exhibited in Museums and galleries in Italy and abroad.

Statement

With my jewels and objects, I try to establish connections, activate a two-way communication with the viewer and to define the concept of preciousness in accordance with my own scale of values.

Contemporary jewellery conceived as wearable art, or even as art in general, has very much to do with sensing a jewel rather than with just liking or not, appreciating its technical and aesthetic value. It has to do with effective communication, with entering one another’s world.
