About Pesci Che Volano ~
The “flying fish” image is a constant reminder for us to give room to imagination and to keep a commitment to originality and creative freedom.
Pesci Che Volano produces bronze jewellery using the ancient lost-wax casting technique; for the past twenty years these artisans have strived to maintain the appeal for an ever timeless taste for essential forms, for handmade work, for a natural creative process devoid of specific allusions to trends or cultures.
This specific production method and the specific stylistic intent of simplicity, give Pesci Che Volano jewellery an antique feel, almost primitive, and without having an intentional or searched reference, has some resemblance with gold and bronze Etruscan works or other Italian protohistoric cultures.
The name “Pesci Che Volano” (flying fish) has a very precise artistic reference, but not obvious enough to forgo an explanation: the inspiration is one of a Bosch triptych altarpiece, where human figures ride flying fish. This image is a metaphor for the folly and dissolute times which the artwork puts in evidence. Instead of that specific significance, the image has been adopted for the charm of the author’s imaginary world, mainly as a tribute to fantasy and as a display of the personal necessity to work outside of rules and regulations.
Irregularities and imperfections on the surface are not therefore to be considered defects, but viewed as characteristic and quality of the product. The choice of using bronze (a copper and tin alloy without nickel), ebony and silver is driven by not just aesthetics but also because of the low reaction risk of these materials.
Care Instructions ~
The signature look and feel to Pesci Che Volano is of times gone by. Ancient relics of the ocean surfaced upon lashing waves. Ageless and mysterious, your piece is designed to represent the beauty in age and imperfection.
Clean your jewellery with mild soap and rub it to take out any dirt that has accumulated. Rinse it with water and dry it using a towel.
Bronze and silver jewellery may tarnish with time and wear. You can restore its original, shiny look by removing the patina with a mix of 2 to 3 tablespoons of baking soda and lemon juice. Rub the paste onto your jewellery using a cloth or a toothbrush until the item is clean – then rinse it and dry it with a cloth. If the patina is persistent, you might need to repeat the process. You can also soak the piece in vinegar for about 20 minutes before cleaning it.
Purchase is for one single bracelet only.
