This Champagne K-Over is a jewel to enrich your table. The Artist took inspiration from the Ancient Greek culture, in which the Pine Cone symbolizes longevity and eternity. In addition, the pine cone signifies a cosmic egg linked to the birth of creation and the beginning of everything. We hope that our customers will use our K-OVER to celebrate the most important moments of their life.

The K-Over has been completely handcrafted by Giuliano Foglia, a Florentine master goldsmith. The production process took several months and the techniques used are overhang and chisel. The core value of the product is given by its artistic perfection. The artist worked a single piece of silver and the complexity of the task was increased by the fact that the reverse side is missing. It is also important to underline the great attention in the reproduction of details.

Artist information

Giuliano Foglia was born in 1947 in Florence. In the ‘60s, despite his young age, Giuliano started working with his father in the family workshop. There, he learned how to design, overhang and chisel. During his long career he realized Madonne, eighteenth-century scenes and fountains. His masterpieces are Calice of the Saint Galgano and the Cups for San Marino Grand Prix (F1). Thanks to his lifelong experience, he is now considered one of the best chisels in Italy. He has been recently working with K-Over for the project: K-over Art.
