Maria Nepomuceno Vases (Vaso Vida), 2021 18 kt yellow satin gold, 18 kt white gold, baroque pearl ring 3 x 3 cm (31 grams) Edition of 10 plus 2 AP Signed and numbered “My first (virtual) encounter with Elisabetta took place on February 2020, a few days before the Coronavirus pandemic begins. It was incredible to feel the world changing radically throughout the creation process. In my perspective, those little sculptures became to me a symbol of a time when people hugged each other, touched each other naturally, without fear. As a jewel touches the skin. In this project where I created those wearable sculptures, the human body is the support. I can experiment the perfect meaning of the work when it integrates with the body landscape.Those microcosms are atavistically connected to the work I’ve been developing in sculpture. Beads, pearls, vases…As babies the jewels evoke their origin at the large mothers’ installations that I produced. I named Vases these necklace and ring series of works, because it symbolizes the feminine power, fertility, vital energy. Vases contain the mystery where life happens”. Maria Nepomuceno

Gigi Mariani    Pebbles series #2 , 2020 Silver, 24kt yellow gold, niello, patina ring 3,2 x 2,1 x h3,8 cm Unique and Signed Gigi Mariani works with antique, almost forgotten techniques. Using niello, a blackener with the aid of sulfur, he conceals the preciousness of the noble metal. Under the application of heat, “blood clots” and cracks appear in the surfaces — making them appear marked by age. Mariani engages his instinctive approach of using the metal surface as a canvas, incorporating he expressive medium of niello, he interrupts that surface texture through his precise, geometric forms. In addition to precious metals, the basic materials of Gigi Mariani’s jewellery include iron, copper and brass. His incredibly sculptural and geometric wearable works of art have become a testament to Mariani’s incredible attention to materiality as both a goldsmith and visual artist.

Tania Pistone Rongorongo, 2019 18kt gold and bespoke coloured enamel (red, white, black and blue) ring 1,5cm height or variable dimensions Unique and signed Tania Pistone’s wearable art project for Elisabetta Cipriani gallery came to life following the artist’s Rongorongo series, paintings which depict an imaginary alphabet on gold-leaf plates. In her Rongorongo paintings, Pistone creates symbols in a deliberate attempt to reach an ideal alphabet, which addresses our shared, collective human unconscious. A place which she believes has been shaped by the experiences of our ancestors: “The modern human is unable to recover the vision of the world held by our ancient ancestors, a vision which I believe still lives within us. We can only access it is through symbols which represent a story, a colour, a number, or a star… To make a sign vibrate as a symbol our interpretative intent must be to achieve that freedom one feels after making a void. This void gives the symbol some space to activate within us, just like sound vibrations in a sound box. A soundbox cannot produce any vibrations if it is full or if it is completely closed. The sign then becomes a bridge between two worlds, where the subtle […]
