"I love surfing and I love the ocean. Being in the water represents so much to me: being one with nature; going with the flow;the water has healing powers and neutralizes my whole system;it forces me to BE in the present moment, cause if I'm not when I'm surfing, I either miss the wave that could have been the radest ride of my life, or if I'm too slow, I get tumbled over and over and wiped up on the beach...
So, one gloomy and cold winter day in school (I went to Lorenzo di Medici in Florence to study Jewelry Making & Design), I found myself longing for tropical warm water. As I sat there daydreaming, I thought to myself ”wouldn’t it be awesome if I could somehow always carry the beauty, power and grace of the ocean with me?? I started drawing and got in the flow and realized I wanted to create something with texture, cause tactile things always makes me present and grounded. I wanted the piece to have weight to it and I wanted it to catch my eye, to remind me of the power of Mother Nature... I started carving in blue wax, then dropped the pieces off for casting. I picked up the silver and soldered the 3 pieces together, then worked it to perfection. After that I made a mold.The process took a couple of weeks.It is now available in brass and silver.I hope you like it as much as I do."
