description of the works|Daniele Basso|
A noble and powerful figure effortlessly gliding in the air, owning the sky, high above reality… This is the Hawk of Achill, inspired by an ancient Celtic myth, a guide leading to love for man and nature, a symbol of enlightenment, creativity, truth and experience connecting us to the spiritual world…
I see it as the embodiment of the power to glance at things from afar, from above, while still being able to pore on details closely and swooping in on meaningful matter when required. It represents freedom from any conditioning in the ability to assess, the courage to enact principles and beliefs, always doing what is right for us in any condition, even in the most difficult and complex situations, in order to solve any problems fast and accurately with no shortsighted doubts and uncertainties, managing our own value and life in absolute freedom and in harmony with the world

Thirst-quenching as ice, a precious mirroring diamond surrounds Contour with eternity. The iconic Coca-Cola bottle made of more than 200 recycled aluminum cans… Twists and turns, lights and shadows move around disclosing the many faces of reality. It is the Coca-Cola World that comes to life with all of us reflecting in it. Passion, happiness and enthusiasm flooding the Earth with smiles! 100 years of history. Everywhere in the world. United as parts of the same Mankind.

This work represents an occasion to ponder upon and investigate transcendency through the language of Art and new metalwork techniques. It is a thought of change and revolution. The idea and symbol of Christ as a milestone overlaps the concept and metaphor of Time. In a moment of crisis, when we are thrown into the fray and deprived of benchmark figures, we can start by signs and symbols to rebuild a new tomorrow. It represent a starting point for an outward journey to reach a new frontier land through the values of the respect for life, brotherhood and equality. It is a message of hope, an invitation to faith in a larger sense, not necessarily to believe in the establishment, but certainly in mankind and life.

Crystals are the go-between of gods and the essence of man. As light turned matter, they represent the universe and guide us. Geologically and chemically pure and perfect, they are precious. They amaze and fascinate. Kryste is my Guiding Stone. Sharp-cornered and apparently all-resistant, experiences work on it that contains the most precious and shiny thing we have in life: our soul. An through the mirror, we get in contact with ourselves.
