Each piece of jewelry of “Pesci che volano” is a unique item realized with the very ancient lost-wax casting technique. The melted metal is drained in the cast which then remains in a cover of plaster after the liquefaction of the prototype. This sample moldeled in wax, remains lost and is not replicable in a series. This process in addition to the work entirely handmade, constitutes the essential value of each piece.
Irregularities and imperfections on the surface are not therefore to be considered defects, but viewed as characteristic and quality of the product. The choice of using bronze (a copper and tin alloy without nickel), ebony and silver is driven by not just aesthetics but also because of the low reaction risk of these materials.
