This champagne cover belongs to our collection Work of Art.
Indeed, the artist transformed our pure silver 999/°° K-OVER into the United States Capitol. As you can see from the pictures, the upper part of the cover reproduces the dome of the Capitol. The value of the oeuvre is enriched by the chiselled reproduction of the Statue of the Liberty, the symbol of American freedom. It is then surrounded by the Stars and Strips of the US flag. In the back, the artist chiselled the withe head eagle.
The cover has been completely handcrafted by Lorenzo Foglia, a Florentine master goldsmith. The production process took several months and the techniques used are overhang and chasing. The core value of the product is given by its artistic perfection. Indeed, 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 to the reproduction of the details, this K-OVER is a unique masterpiece.
Lorenzo Foglia, was born in Viareggio in 1971. He grew up in his family workshop, and still very young, started working there together with his father and grandfather. There, he studied the art of metalworking and learned embossing and chisel techniques. During his career he created furniture and jewellery for the Royal Houses of Europe, the theatre and cinema. He won twice the international competition “Art in a Jewel”, promoted by Florence Gift Mart. He is President of the Silversmiths of the city of Florence and he is “Master Craftsman” recognized by Tuscany Region, “OMA Craftsman”, and “Master of Art and Craft” for the Cologni Foundation of Milan.
Recently, he has been working with K-OVER for the project: works of art. He signed all the champagne cover he chiselled.
