I had the pleasure to have one of my pieces in an exhibition at Cominelli Foundation on the beautiful lake Garda.
The theme of the award was brooches inspired by the lake Garda. One striking characteristic of Lake Garda is the contrast between the steep limestone mountains and vast expanse of turquoise water. The brooch conveys the tension between the angular, protruding shapes of the mountains and the sweet calm of the lake water.The contrast between these elements is underlined by the bold color difference between the silver of the mountains and the blue enamel of the water. The main techniques used to make the brooch are chase and repousse and vitreous enamel.
My piece was made during this year at my school Le arti Orafe, so I have to thank them for the help in making and thinking the piece. It was a great day, in a beautiful location with wonderful other pieces to see. The exhibition is open till the 7 of October during the week-ends, there is also a great permanent collection of contemporary jewelry
