Signed by the Artist
Gianluca Pacchioni, a Milan-based artist, acclaimed for his rigorously sculpted metal objects, began forging metal as a self-taught apprentice in a studio shared with other artists at Quai de la Gare in Paris. After his first exhibition, the Cologni Foundation awarded Pacchioni a Master in Fine Arts & Crafts, an honor that recognizes the most skilled artisans in Italy. Pacchioni’s team fuses his methods with traditional techniques to manipulate metal in new ways. His work has matured into a virtuous fusion of brass, bronze, iron, stones layered with different patinas, and poured liquid metals.
The Cremino is a unique hand-crafted piece part of the Cremino series, which unfolds various table sizes and designs. The series suspends stones, handpicked by Pacchioni from quarries throughout Italy, on an uncannily thin bronze and brass structure.
The polished brass surface reflects the natural underside of the stone. An assemblage of stone, brass, and bronze each is painstakingly crafted at the artist's studio in Milan reflecting the set of expertise and techniques mastered by Pacchioni.
Travertine stone framed within a cast bronze or brass structure. Top surface covered with liquid brass or bronze. Reflecting surface beneath the stone made of Japanese highly polished stainless steel.
