Sergio Antracite Figar
To apply the idea of a jewel to the surrounding environment, to objects and to people was, and still is, a fine play, a nice travelling mate: sometimes it's ironic and visionary, sometimes it's the guardian of old traditions.
The synergy that is being created between shape and color, is the real glittering that these jewels bring along with them as a dowry Passion is not enough, Love is needed primarily so as to make dreams come true without risking that its halo would be lost. My specialty has been the "Commesso Mediceo" or "Commesso Fiorentino" (Florentine mosaic of hard stones) made of stones matched with contemporary jewels for more than twenty-three years now. The pastel nuances of lapis lazuli, jaspers and adventurines make up the chromatic structure of the jewel whereas the opal, with its magic, opens a window, an eye into the inner self of the artwork.
