CIRKUITA: HIGH-TECH JEWELS (08/05/2018)

Bellissima esperienza. Il laboratorio, come luogo é un libro aperto: racconta tutta la personalità di Paola! Lei è davvero originale e appassionata, abbiamo passato un bel pomeriggio ed abbiamo creato i nostri “gioielli” in serenità e pace! Grazie davvero!

CIRKUITA: HIGH-TECH JEWELS (04/01/2016)

Partecipare al workshop con Paola è stata una bellissima esperienza, sinceramente qualcosa di nuovo rispetto al solito. E' stato il regalo di Natale per il mio fidanzato e ci siamo divertiti molto a smontare vecchi oggetti hi-tech per trovare qualche piccolo tesoro da poter riutilizzare per la creazione di gioielli. Nello specifico abbiamo realizzato un anello e un ciondolo, dopo aver smontato una stampante, una macchina fotografica e un cellulare. Paola ci ha accolti nel suo laboratorio pieno zeppo di meraviglie tecnologiche da reinventare, raccontandoci della sua esperienza professionale e personale e dei suoi progetti futuri. Sono state 4 ore molto piacevoli, un'esperienza da rifare e che consiglio tantissimo. Per fortuna al giorno d'oggi non ci manca nulla, piu' che regalare oggetti possiamo provare a regalare un po' di tempo ai nostri cari... E riscoprire artigiani e botteghe di cui l'Italia è molto ricca!

THE STORY

Paola is a designer of contemporary jewelry, an artisan and artist who works in Milan.
As a contemporary alchemist inspired by the future Paola has created Orotrasparente, a new lightweight material that is the result of five years of experimentation and research; an intractable material, light as air and clear as water, which makes you feel like the protagonist of a new era.
It all began with an idea when, in front of Ayers Rock, in the middle of Australia, I was struck by an inspiration: making beautiful shapes to the pure delight of men. My research began in 2004 in front of a window full of light overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and it is now going on in a laboratory on a courtyard of a “Vecchia Milano” building near the famous "navigli". After 20 years as Art Director in the mass media industry, I decided to start this long research toward a new ideal of beauty between contemporary mythology, archaic symbols but also the special harmony that happens when East meets West.
"The advent of the technological world oriented towards future and evolution is changing all of our lives and has connected all the different areas of the world, so that we have turned from centuries of strong materiality to this new millennium of immateriality and transparency."
