Biamonti Maura - Jeweler
A desire to express herself pushed Maura to accept the exciting challenge of creating jewelry. It starts from an idea that turns into a graphic sign and, at that moment, it's a great utopia that is realized ...
The metal's rigidity is transformed into movement and light, it welcomes stones and other materials in a perfect interlacing: the jewel object is born, pleasant to the look as to the touch.
The emotion that Maura's jewels communicate comes from a strong technique that is perceived through the flexible balance of forms. Once the metal "tamed", making jewelry is giving joy above all.
Without a priori or rigid choice of style, Etruscan influences are projected into a contemporary object, vegetal inspirations turn into geometric patterns and the emotion of the stones' color blends with the light of gold and silver .
Of Italian origin, Maura Biamonti spent her childhood and adolescence in close contact with nature. After a technical degree, follows a decade of artistic research: dance, theater, photography. In the late 80s, she began her experiments in goldsmithing. Between 1992 and 2010, she works in her studio in Italy. In 2010, she started working in France, in Antibes. Then in April 2011 she opened a workshop in Biot. Her research is developing around textures and colors of metals. Botany and architecture are at the base of her inspiration.
About her work:
"My research, experiments and creations are part of me, the passion they generate is like a game. I can say that I started half a century ago, even though I got closer to the traditional techniques of silverware at the end of the 80s only At the base of my research, there is the interaction with nature, primary and inexhaustible source of emotion and poetry. Playing with textures, pigments, oxidations, etc. ., I try to give the metal a different, more organic and mineral look. I combine stones and natural and synthetic materials to create both contrasts and connivances. In my way "I play Nature" and it's a joy."
