This work was specially made for the Contest “Gioielli in Fermento 2015”. The theme of that edition “food for our soul” associates art jewellery with the wine making process.

The work presented is the result of the maturation of my research with the acrylic glass, where the transformation of the material is controlled by the temperature and time.

By producing bubbles in this material, it is as if I were doing a synthetic material breath. Poetically, giving it anima. And thus it is an invitation to rethink the concept of preciousness.

The result is multiple, both the enigmatic reflections and refractions produced between the acrylic glass, light, ink and polished silver; as by its articulated composition, which allows various forms of use.
