Sérénité (Serenity) is part of the Gingko series of miniature, wearable sculptures, visually derived from the leaves of the ancient Japanese tree. It was first designed in 2011 with gilded bronze, until she started moving onto titanium, which proves to be much lighter and more dynamic.
With the artist’s interest in nature’s intricate spirituality, the holders take form of hand sculpted gingko leaves made in gold plated brass embracing the candle like a sculpture. The gingko leaf was purposely chosen by the artist not only for its singular beauty, but mainly for the its meaningful symbolism of longevity and wellbeing that is associated with the history of Acampora and its wonderful aromas. A beautiful ginkgo sculpture enwrapping Acampora finest scents encapsulated in the candle, Sérénité (Serenity) becomes an elegant piece of interior design.
