The pieces from the collection Petra represent fragments of rocks fallen from mountains stretching towards the sky or from an abyss living underwater. This collection is pervaded by the call to nature and this is emphasised by the realisation process which is „honest and direct“. The human intervention is kept at the minimum and the wax models used for the casting were realised combining pieces of real rocks with pieces of wax, modelled using only the saw. Some treasures can be found hidden in the precious rocks, like a gold nugget in the Marmolada ring. The so created shapes were then casted using the simple and unpretentious technique of sand casting. The texture is the main protagonist of the pieces: rough but shiny, these rings are made to be moved between the fingers while we recall unconscious memories and emotions.
