I see our art as The Little Prince saw his rose.... special and unique; though it may look like any other rose when in a garden..
she was his own special rose.
We work and value and love each piece we make.
Making art is our passion, we give it all our tender love, much thought.
Sometimes, we may work on a piece for months...even years, until we are satisfied--these sometimes turn out to be amongst our best pieces. Other times, we are so disappointed with the result, we simply destroy it by tossing it in the fire and begin anew.
Each time we finish a piece we look at it together, we discuss the process...and think about where we will go next...
Sergio scans it for documentation purposes, and we either place them inside various basket bins we have in the studio (unframed pieces)- or we hang them on our wall.
They stay this way, admired by us and our studio visitors.... until someone gives them a loving home- until it is singled out from the 'garden'.
No longer is the piece 'one among many', it becomes a unique piece set apart to be admired and treasured wherever it's final home is.
So no, I am never sad when my pieces leave the studio.... I am thrilled!
I love to see the photos that people send me of our art in their living space.... it is an honour to know that our art adorns, encourages and beautifies spaces they were meant for.
