Iro Piegare 

From the Japanese for Color (“Iro”) and the Italian for Fold (“Piegare”), Iro Piegare is the combination of traditions from the artists’ Italian heritage in the form of mosaic art and her love of all things Japanese, especially paper and paper folding. 

The motivation behind this collection is to show the beauty of cultural integration.  Taking these two ends of the spectrum, two ancient art traditions from opposite ends of the world, two disparate materials (paper, glass) and then combining them with a sculptural element to all come together into one contemporary art piece.  A combination of influences creates a new beauty greater than the singular techniques of the past.
