Maria Rosa Franzin uses tiny specks of fine gold on the surface of white or oxidized silver, as if it were paint that she applies to the surface of the metal in the form of brush strokes or tiny dots. This pictorial approach stems from her background at the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice where she trained as a painter. Since the early days, Franzin has made use of gold in a very light, almost insubstantial manner. The gold specks almost become intangible, but at the same time are able to capture the light and show us the beauty of their warm natural colour in contrast to that of the dark or white silver they are lying on. An important feature in her work is the three-dimensional aspect. Most of her works have a double layer or have elements protruding so as to create a shadow or occupy the surrounding space. Her latest pieces have seen the introduction of resin, creating monochromatic crust-like surfaces, that at times englobe other elements, such as coral.
