Letizia Maggio

Jeweller

Intro
Based in the North East of Italy, after gaining degree in English literature and while working as a teacher, I attended many ceramics courses with internationally renowned artists and studio potters. I started using clay and porcelain for my first collections of design and fashion jewelry and objects, each piece being completely handmade and unique. I then enriched my education through goldsmithing courses and started my intimate and passionate research with all sorts of materials. My works, which blend sculpture, painting and installative language, are mainly focused on communication, aiming to both eliciting a reaction and establishing an effective relationship with the viewer/wearer. I like to works with different materials and tend in different directions but the flow of time and the power of emotions are a leit- motif in my collections, strongly supported by photography.

Statement

I love making jewelry. And I love to communicate with other people. So the two things perfectly match. I create pieces which are expected to give a start to a conversation with the viewer ( possibly the wearer ). I'm permanently in need of something new: new shapes, new design, new materials, new relationsihps. So I enjoy the thrill of constant research and I accept to run the risk of taking the wrong way at times. I also try to always feature irony in my work ( and in my life as well ).
