Craftmanship and artistry.
So dreams become jewels.
Each creation of Laura Volpi is a summary of energy, originality, research and expert craftsmanship: in her jewels, but also in sculptures, reliefs or collages, the material is shaped through the creative elaboration of dreams, memories and symbols of childhood to be shaped in an object that expresses emotions and pure feeling.
A frequent source of inspiration for the artist is the liquid element, with its treasures and its creatures back to a regression almost amniotic shaping each piece with personal strength and strong recognition.
All works, limited edition and made by hand, form the confluence of different artistic experiences with one goal: to create uniqueness stopping in matter “that moment” that is told in airy and never closed forms, in the cracks where the light can get, in the embrace ideal combining the metal with the precious stone, shell or fossil. Laura Volpi choose to lower gold and silver, precious items, getting them matt and furrowed, and instead attributed to bronze and brass new dignity that stands in the complexity of the artistic process. The creations come to life with skill and craftsmanship through the ancient technique of lost wax casting.
