Provocative, unusual, conversation pieces were words used in 1948 to describe the unique work by Margaret De Patta. Still true today, her work undoubtedly redefined the frontiers of exploration in the jewelry field. Inspired by the exceptional universe she created, where space and light were intertwined in so many innovative ways, the artist made two sculptural rings, keeping in mind these subjects of investigation. It’s by holding in his hands clear quartz and a silver plate that the artistic process has began. Taking an architectural approach, Claudio sought unexpected alterations of light by creating illusive volume. He cut the limpid stone to form an internal dome, as she often did, and then placed it on various textures. Like ice, frost on a window, the light was captured inside the stone, and an astounding 3D effect was created. With these sculptural rings, entitled Light-Space, Claudio presents geometric compositions with the artist's own aesthetic signature that celebrates the grandeur of De Patta’s magnificent work.
