Each work is individually designed and crafted using an assortment of dichroic glass, 24 karat gold, silver wire and enamel stencils. The glass is selected for color and texture, shaped to design, kiln heated to 1500 degrees and then polished. I try to use something new and unique In every piece, so that no two items are alike. My inventory now includes pendants, bracelets, necklaces, rings and I am continuously searching for new designs.
Francesca Scalpi - Photography
In art school, I wanted to learn about mastering tools to create my own sense of self expression. I always needed the freedom to organically create.Looking through a camera lens, I open my mind’s eye and try to experience what I see. What will move me? Will it be the light, shadows, shape, movement, or the soul reflected in an eye? The process of creating for me is never the same because it is raw, unfiltered and not planned. When I go through my prints, I only select ones that move me and try not to over analyze it. I minimize digital processing and aim for the image I saw in nature.

My paintings arise out of a lifelong fascination with the world of nature. As a child, I was continually making collections of flowers, leaves, rocks, etc., much to the consternation of my mother who could never quite understand her son’s preoccupation. Now, it is the love of looking at and experiencing viscerally the beauty that surrounds us, and the need to express and share those emotional experiences that fuel my work. “In beauty there is truth.”
