Contemporary metalworking and enamelled copper. Metal enamel paint is a very ancient art that matches the fragility of glass with the strength of the metal surfaces it covers. With the combination of metal, glass and fire I create new shapes and new colors. Overlapping layers of enamel joined on the metal through a high temperature melting process gives rise to transparency, opacity and oxidation creating always new results after each firing process. The search for an effect and new solutions fascinates me and pushes me to transfer the intuition, emotion and surprise to the object.
I truly believe that giving shape to one’s feelings with one’s own hands is an enjoyable, unique experience. When it comes to designing and creating, I let materials, colors and shapes inspire me.
