Lucia in the Sky - White Lady
LUCIA in the Sky s.f. #objectdheartwithart
Benedetta Bruzziches gives birth to Lucia in the Sky in September 2020, looking forward to bringing light and lightness.
The name Lucia was borrowed by the master who made it. The making process of this totally handmade masterpiece is in the magic hands of the super shy Lucia who works together with her husband in the atelier in Arezzo (Tuscany). Here the Italian mastership of goldsmith’s art fuses with the special expertise of the brass's workmanship.
The idea is to lend on air intangibility to the metal. As Michelangelo taught, an art object can be "freed" from the material that encloses it until an artist encounters it.
Like marble under Michelangelo’s chisel, to give birth to Lucia in the sky a brass sheet is emptied and becomes a thin frame for a row of swinging crystals. Then, we add a purse of silk satin to this sculpture to store the essentials: phone, lipstick, and cardholder.
Light weft, neat shape, magic and lustrous: a little treasure is born.
