Handcrafted in Florence, Pesci Che Volano produces beautiful bronze jewellery using the ancient lost-wax casting technique; for a natural, creative process. This specific production method and the stylistic intent of simplicity, give their jewellery an antique feel, yet a very contemporary aesthetic.
Each piece of jewellery of “Pesci che volano” is unique due to the very ancient lost-wax casting technique. The melted metal is drained in the cast which then remains in a cover of plaster after the liquefaction of the prototype. This sample molded in wax, remains lost and is not able to be replicated. This process in addition to the work entirely handmade, constitutes the value of each piece.
Irregularities and imperfections on the surface are not therefore to be considered defects, but viewed as characteristic and quality of the product. The choice of using bronze (a copper and tin alloy without nickel), ebony and silver is driven by not just aesthetics but also because of the low reaction risk of these materials.
Comes in a lovely cloth presentation bag.
