Maybe: in seeing it move under the hammer blows, in colours that change at the heat of the fire; in the forcing of bends, or tips or blades inside it - or against it. In taking it out of the acid, matt - silvery. In polishing it with Love. In letting it standing out strong, and contrasting, against fabric and skin and hair: extending lines of force, pushing the beholder's eyes - or yours - deeper, Inside.
It's an Art by itself - even if "minor" and mistreated: and she needs affection. Yes - affection.
Hi!, I'm Davide. I try to be a metalsmith. My other vices was good prose, and is powerlifting.

Papallona's Catalogue

In the meantime, it happens that the Butterflies exhibition - remember? that was in barcellona - have been extended to a sultry 101 butterflies exhibition, hold in the Museo de Ciènces Naturals de Granollers (somewhere outside Barcellona) fromt the 29th of Nov 2013 to the 2nd of March 2014. I've lost the inauguration - I'm poor in this crisis plagued nation - but, well: here's the catalogue. It's magnificent, and I am so proud to be part of it.

Here's the catalogue
