and so, maybe: maybe metal hides some other way of Expression. 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.
Now scroll down, pliiz.

and here we are - againe

so Dear Author, we are pleased to announce You have been admitted to the Gioielli in Fermento Award 2013 - Torre Fornello Award 2013 etc.
here diverse material:
the complete list of chosen works:

the description of my work (the cocktail rings) I sent with the submission:

A reflection - in 1:1 idea's scale - around the concept of "cocktail ring": as a hint, or a rough sketch, and with a proposal for a tripartite, "mixological" zoning of the day: where the Bloody Mary Ring guides awakenings 'till brunch; the Manhattan ring envelopes suave preparatory evenings, and the Margarita ring soaks nights with intensity in disguise.

and the sneaky pic I promised - the rings in their box (then discarded)

c u the 12 of may, at Torre Fornello - Fornello di Ziano Piacentino - for the show's opening.
againe, :-)
