The inspiration for this collection was born from my growing love for street art and graffiti as I began to travel and discover the works of artists from around the world. As I continued on to new places, I became more familiar with the work of a few artists and began to see the unfamiliar world colliding with the world of familiarity. I realized how we're all here trying to leave little pieces of “us” regardless of where we are or come from. I created the Graffiato Collection as a reminder to scratch away your name in everything you do, to leave your best mark in this beautiful world.
Each piece in the collection has been carefully hand carved from wax, then cast to order using the lost wax casting process in either solid Bronze or Sterling Silver, and lastly cleaned, sanded and gently polished by hand. The porcelain spikes incorporated are also hand shaped, fired and polished. While each piece is crafted to hit it's own mark of perfection, due to the nature of hand craftsmanship, each will vary slightly and have it's own set of subtle characteristics that separate it from all the rest.
