Angelo prefers to visit the stone quarries himself to select extraordinary stones. Close to the source the relationship with the stone comes into being; an instant connection is formed by the surroundings, origin and authenticity. The most beautifully shaped and coloured stones. Inspiration increases.
The various types of stones, each with their unique features, make working with natural stone diverse and fascinating. The stone challenges Angelo. The eventual colour and appearance surprise every time again.
He reveals the beauty of the stone while conserving its natural character.
Because of his background in the metal industry, Angelo likes to work with various metals such as bronze, aluminium and steel.
Some of the stone sculptures are made of bronze and are cast in a professional foundry.
To ensure that the sculpture obtains the perfection and appearance he desires for his pieces of art, the finishing and patinating is done by Angelo himself.
Applying matt patina is a specialist process which gives the sculpture a warm, soft appearance and gets the bronze mistaken for stone regularly.
