Tania Pistone Rongorongo, 2021 Homage to Alan Watts 18kt gold with bespoke red enamel ring 1 x 13 cm unique and signed   Tania Pistone’s wearable art project for the 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. ‘This project was dedicated to Alan Watts, an English philosopher born in (1915 – 1973). His major contribution was given as a popularizer in the West of Eastern philosophies (Zen). In one of his many monologues, there is the one on: what is love, which I used to engrave the plates (obviously it is fragmented into the various jewels), but the intention is that the message they carry is that.

Karl Fritsch Ring 167, 2008 White gold and diamonds ring 1.5 x 2 x 0.5 cm unique and signed “I think I am very lucky that I found a medium [rings] that suits me so much. I love the small scale, I like working with fire and a hammer and other tools, I like that there is a variety of resistance from whatever material I work with, and that there is a history I can work with. I like that ideally it lives very close with somebody and will have a very different life once it is out there in the world; that is jewellery.” – Karl Fritsch

Gigi Mariani Pebbles Series, 2021 Silver, 24kt yellow gold, niello ring 3 x 3.1 x 2.9 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.
