Event Description

Smithsonian Craft Show Artist  Shops - Francesca Vitali by Francesca Vitali
ARTIST BIO

Francesca Vitali strives to transform paper, a humble and ordinary material, into precious objects of unique and modern design. Paper affects everyday life continuously and in multiple forms: magazines, maps, shopping bags, etc. therefore she enjoys the idea that fragments of our lives will remain trapped in her paper jewelry.

Vitali earned her Ph.D. in organic chemistry at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Besides her passion for science, she worked with paper since she was a child in Italy, but it was only when she moved in US that she decided to take a leap of faith and left her science carrier and began making jewelry full time. She has being showing her work ever since in the most prestigious shows all over the country.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work aims to achieve body adornment through folded and woven paper rather than relying on gemstones or precious materials. This concept strives to link the humble nature of paper with notions of preciousness.

I am one of 100 artists selected to be part of the prestigious Smithsonian Craft Show, hosted this year on Bidsquare. To learn more and see the full list of participating artists, click here.
