Ornella Iannuzzi

MA work

The aim of my project is to pay homage to nature. I'm fascinated with the genesis of things: What is it to grow? What is the origin of life? Where are our roots? These are the main questions that inform my work. The mineral reign, which is the first one division of the natural world, is a great source of inspiration and materials for me. The vegetable reign, which is the second, has a strong influence on my creations too. From these materials, I would like to give the feeling that nature itself gave birth to my jewels.
