In the footsteps of time

Title of the jewel: “In the footsteps of time”

The jewel represents a journey through time, places and different forms of art;
in a single piece coexists the goldsmith art of the Florentine Renaissance, the micro-mosaic in marble that recalls the ancient Roman floors and a mythological figure daughter of the ancient Greek civilization, cradle of Mediterranean culture.
It is a journey through the author’s own experience,
the face of Medusa recalls the themes of mythology appreciated since childhood, the material from which it was obtained is lava stone from Vesuvius and geographically leads to that Campania land to which he himself belongs through his origins, land of unique places in the world such as the ancient city of Pompeii, which through its excavations and its archaeological finds has always fascinated Ivan, hence the love for ancient Roman mosaics.
The journey then continues through the goldsmith’s art that unites everything, it is clear the reference to the Florentine techniques so much appreciated, learned and perfected in a training course that took place however far from the Tuscan capital but rather in the region where his atelier lives and is based. ; that territory between the lakes of Lombardy where Ivan has learned the work he loves and which he transmits through works like this one.

Infinity

gioiello in mosaico con maschera teatrale

The Infinity collection originates from a collaboration between the goldsmith Ivan Barbato and the mosaicist Fabio Bordi, and proposes the theme of ancient Rome.

The union between these two ancient decorative arts is suggestive.

These jewels made of bronze, adorned with marble tiles and Venetian enamels, seem to belong to an ancient past.

The star of this collection is the classic medallion-shaped pendant.

The ornamental motif in the center is made of bronze, coral or lava stone, while the decorations at the edges are made up of micro mosaic fragments.

At the customer’s request, the models in this collection can also be made with precious materials such as noble metals, gems and ancient marbles.

The collection bears the signature of the two artisans and the symbol of infinity refers to Rome, the Eternal City.
