Stefania Lucchetta

Trained in traditional jewelry-making techniques, Italian artist Stefania Lucchetta began using 3D software and rapid prototyping machines as part of her studies in industrial design. She started her practice in 2002, applying these industrial techniques to unexpected materials including polyamide, biocompatible resins, Stellite, and titanium. The resulting sculptural pieces, which may recall the machine age, organic chemistry models, or even Japanese lanterns, challenge the preconception that the artist and the machine are always at odds. Lucchetta continues to research the application of new technologies to jewelry design in her quest to create wearable signs and symbols that capture the essence of our times.
