“In my Jewelry I want to project my awareness in their process of execution, crystallizing the phases of transformation into substance in which they are made.
I ask myself the end to point out the phases of their becoming: even reality nonetheless is never ending, and constant transformation.
Thinking that for every creation there is a beginning and a theoretical point of arrival of its own, one must not believe that, like in my works, that they represent just a moment of transition, of unfinished of uncompleted, in fieri, in short auroral state. /
My continuous research is brimmed to sharpen harmony and equilibrium found in every step in which matter takes shape, following those precise rules that regulates its structure.
As a creator studying them, I enrich myself provoking within me a serious of interior tensions that subsequently expresses in completed forms, I become aware of my capacities and of my humanity and I engaged myself to communicate to the user of my achievement."
My workshop has an irrational architectural form.
It was obtained, and looks like a large hallway with a bottleneck in the center that allows me little mobility. It is low-tech and provides just the tools necessary and essential for the work of a goldsmith: manual mill, draw plates, blow torch, drill, polishing machine, ultrasound and the rest of those tools that are used to bend, weld, cut etc.; typically what is needed to hand work metal.
In my studio, I am surrounded by things that are part of my experience; objects and fragments that I have chosen, gathered because they tell me a story. For me those stories are still alive and contain references, such as the shade of a color, the geometry of a form or the physical nature of a material, which bring me in turn to tell a story, even if completely different from the original one.
My bench doesn't have any particular personalizations. When I moved to this space, I had to change my bench because it was too large for the present space and I bought a smaller used bench, that bore various marks and burns. The fact that I had to get a smaller bench wasn't a problem for me, maybe because of the fact that the work I do is quite repetitive and not so technically specialized. On the other hand, my stool is special and allows me to rest my knees while working so that I keep my back straight and don't get too tired.
