Emanuela Duca
Artist Statement

My work, which explores the notion of movement in solid form, is shaped by the two distinct lives I have led; as a Roman citizen and a working artist in New York.

The earth-bound, highly textured surfaces are evocative of volcanic ash and the ancient ruins of my native Rome.¬† But their shape and combination, true to my New York sensibility, are clean, simple and minimal. It’s this marriage of primitive and sophisticated, European and American, that gives meaning and purpose to my work.

Sculpted in wax, then forged and constructed in sterling silver, the individual forms are shaped and manipulated through folding, hammering, and piercing.¬† It’s a process that allows for an ongoing exploration of form and function that is always revealing itself in new possibilities. With a sophisticated approach to modernism, my jewelry speaks to my love of femininity, while embracing strength and vulnerability.
