My jewels, made of biocompatible resin, polyamide, titanium or stellite, are the result of a long and deep research on shapes, materials and new techniques. Since the beginning, in 1999, my goal was to overcome the boundaries imposed by traditional materials and production techniques. My aim was to move forward, beyond what was already achievable, pushing modern technologies to their limits and exploring their full potential, to find new possibilities of expression.
“Lucchetta’s jewels are such because they are composed by the project’s preciousness, and that’s why the work of this artist has the tendency to strike with great incisiveness.
It would be advisable, looking for a correct reading of Lucchetta’s work, to use an enlargement lens or to see the image of these jewels in a great photographic enlargement. The large scale is always intimately present in these works of small dimension; their strong monumental taste would emerge at first look.
It deals with contemporary architectures. Spaces denied to domestic fruition but devoted to dress the body.”
