The splendid wildness of nature tamed by the human hand, intelligence, the art of man and the jewel as synthesis, an object of desire.
From labyrinths to vaccuous horror through continuous forms in motion, the lines and segments, scattered like travel notes, flow together into precious ideas that encircle the fingers. Noting and drawing the gestures they are caressed by thought: these are Asad Ventrella’s Gold rings.
At times the attraction of natural elements, minerals, raw materials, void of valuee in themselves, a diamond, a brilliant cut solitaire, shines, doning splendour to design.
Desire that animates the skilled craftsman’s hand Desire that moves the creator of the jewel and moreover the woman possessor. Desire that quarries rock in search of its fruit of shining metal, splendid gem stones, stones that intersect metal in designs that set off colours, enhancing the precious play of light.
Having faith, trusting, the symbol of the sealing of a union…simple curves, complex, alternating, precious metals which declare the mutual joy of exchanging rings.
