GianCarlo Montebello’s research focuses on the study of the characteristics pertaining to materials such as steel, and the capability to stretch the possibilities that the material itself offers. An example can be drawn from wafer-thin elements that compose neckpieces that, although voluminous, are very comfortable on the body on account of their total weightlessness. The contrast between the visual impact of the works and lightness when handled, creates an element of surprise and wonder in the spectator. It can thus be said that the relationship and interaction of the materials with the body is of fundamental importance in Montebello’s works. Intricate perforations on the surface of the metal, creating pieces that resemble lace, or the introduction of bright, innovative colours that go to form inventive patterns, present us with jewellery that avails itself of highly technological methods of accomplishment, innovative not merely due to the materials or techniques used, but unique in its essence.
