The collections Ancestrali Africani was inspired by the African shield and it started as a commission piece. After discovering the many meaning of the shield I have decide to create a collection researching the design showed on these 4 pieces.
The technique used involves glass painted. The bold design its black-grisaille fired at 1250 F. on ¼-inch glass. The yellow color its silver-stain fired at1050 F. The centers are hand blown glass, copper, sterling silver, gold and brass and spins on there vertical axis
