STONE

STONE TELLS MY STORY THAT STARTS WITH MY ORIGINS IN TUSCANY, THE LAND OF CARRARA MARBLE. THIS MATERIAL IS USED FOR THE BASE OF MY SEAT AND REPRESENTS THE LAND WHERE I WAS BORN.

THE IDEA FOR STONE COMES FROM THE DESIRE TO UNITE MY ROOTS WITH THE PRESENT SYMBOLICALLY, TO SHOW MY DEVELOPMENT AS A DESIGNER JUST LIKE THE BRANCHES OF A TREE WHICH GROW UP TOWARDS THE SKY IN SEARCH OF THE  LIGHT.

TWO PIECES OF WOOD WERE PLACED ON THE MARBLE BASE THAT ARE INTERCHANGEABLE AND ACCORDING TO THEIR POSITION CAN BECOME A CHAIR OR A TABLE. MARBLE WHICH SYMBOLISES MY ORIGINS IS AN ELEMENT WHICH IS SOLID AND REMAINS UNCHANGED IN TIME WHILE WOOD ON THE OTHER HAND DOES CHANGE AND THEREFORE SYMBOLISES MY GROWTH AS AN ARTIST.

HENCE THE MARBLE AND THE WOOD INTERACT TOGETHER AND ARE JOINED BY THE ELEMENT BRASS  WHICH REPRESENTS MY SOUL AND SPIRIT. THE BRASS REFLECTS THE LIGHT AND SHINES LIKE A JEWEL.

STONES IS MY LIFE’S STORY TOLD THROUGH THE THREE MATERIALS OF CARRARA MARBLE, WOOD AND BRASS.
