About Us

Marianne Schliwinski

The forms are dominated by the excellent proportions. The metal, each with another shape and its surface are in a relation to the wood, which is well thought. The form of the wood, its different curves gives the brooches their name 'Voltino'. Curve and line realized in metal and wood, are linked with small bowls and small staffs, related to their own temperament. The sensible opposition between forms and materials is reduced by using gold leaf and copper leaf, and it creates a double sense with high tension.
