TRUE STORY

May 1, 2017

I DISCOVERED FEATHERS TWENTY YEARS AGO WHEN I STARTED MY BUSINESS AS COSTUME DESIGNER.  A REALLY GOOD FRIEND OF MINE, A TALENTED HAT DESIGNER INTRODUCED ME TO THE CRAFT OF "FEATHER TRANSFORMATION"; IT HAD NOT BEEN A REVELATION AT THE TIME, IT JUST BECAME AN IDEA IN MY MIND.

 

I DISCOVERED THE ART OF MASK MAKING WHILST AFTER TRAVELLING  TO VENICE AND FINALLY THE MOMENT CAME WHEN I DECIDED TO LIVE IN THE CITY I LOVED THE MOST...VENICE PRECISELY.

 

FROM THERE I CREATED MY OWN STYLE, PUT FEATHERS INTO IT AND INCLUDED EVERYTHING I LEARNED ABOUT TRANSFORMATION IN MY YOUNGER YEARS.  IT CAME SO SPONTANEOUSLY,  AND I COULDN'T STOP MY MIND CREATING NEW WAYS TO EMBELLISH ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ART OF THE CITY, THE PRECIOUS ART OF THE VENITIAN MASK.

 

I LOVE VENICE AND I LOVE ITS ARTISANS WHO ARE PART OF THE ESSENCE AND THE HISTORY OF THE CITY,  AND WHICH SHOULD NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.

 

LIKE MY FELLOW CRAFTSMEN AND ARTISANS OF VENICE, I AM CREATING AND PRODUCING ENTIRELY HANDMADE PIECES WHICH ARE PART OF A THEME AND A STORY;  ALSO OFTEN SINGLE PIECES THAT ARE NEVER REPRODUCED AS I OFFER A UNIQUE "INSPIRATION OF THE MOMENT" TO EACH INDIVIDUAL MASK, AND THE BEST MATERIALS TO BRING THE CHARACTER ALIVE.

THIS IS  JUST LIKE MY DEAR FRIENDS THAT YOU COULD SEE IF YOU WALK BY THE "CALLE" OF VENICE,  SCULPTING, SHAPING POLISHING, PAINTING THEIR OWN PIECES OF CREATION IN THEIR WORKSHOP OR STORE...THERE IS THE SOUL OF THE ART AND PURE CRAFT.

 

IT'S A NOBLE PIECE OF ART, A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE THROUGH A MASK EITHER TO WEAR FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION OR TO DISPLAY IN THE SPACE OF YOUR CHOICE.
