In the Alberoni beach I found some beautiful purple coloured and transparent jellyfishes, this encounter became source of inspiration and turned into a bright sculpture. The work of art revives a moment in life, the Water of the sea and the jelly-like matter turns into Earth, Fire and Air, nature which resurrects and constantly evolves. I think that each person reinterprets the images in a different way according to his own culture of origin. The exchange and the integration among the techniques and materials typical of different cultures, the Raku technique, and the processing of blown glass, produce in the artist a sense of “release” which reaches an unpredictable level, recalling the moment when the human being surrenders himself to Nature, thanks to the attendance of the four elements one obtains pieces having surfaces rich of shades, of metallic reflections and iridescences. In this case the flames cooperated in redefining and decorating the surfaces of the work of art “Meduse”.
Materials: Raku ceramic, Murano glass, wood and LED
