Alessandra Di Gennaro
I chose the mosaic as an instrument of knowledge and expression.
I am fortunate to live in two of the most beautiful cities in the world. Rome is the city where I was born and raised and which gave me the love for marble and classic mosaic.
In Venice where I live and work I discovered glass, its bright colors, smooth and bright surfaces.
Venetian's know how
In my work as a mosaicist I have always given importance to detail, to the care for the smallest tiles.
With the [VE-RO] jewels, which in Venetian dialect means glass, I want to create a small and precious objects to wear.
I am attracted to simple geometric rhythms, such as the cosmatesque floors of the Basilica of San Marco or the Ca'Doro palace.
Blown by mouth
I experience the combination of different noble materials, the rough opacity of Italian marble with the brilliance of Murano glass.
I like to look for the right detail in the designs of mouth-blown glass beads by expert craftsmen.
Each piece is unique, handmade with a hammer and lime, made with Venetian materials, installed on pure 925 silver bases.
