Cono Brooch, 2015

This is a Brooch. It is dated 2015 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is stoneware (gres ceramic), gold with neillo (alloy of silver,copper, and lead sulfides). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Driven by the beauty of line and form, and known for his work with gold and semi-precious stones, in this brooch Pasquale overcomes technical challenges to combine dissimilar ceramic, gold, and niello materials.
