An Italian artist and jewelry designer, the work produced by Giorgio Vigna are touched with beauty and precision. Highly symbolic, Vigna is compelled by the tension of opposites and his pieces are focused on the convergence of the imagination and reality. His professional accomplishments include being a jewelry designer for theatrical performances, operas, fashion shows and movies. The Birds Collection by iittala was dominated by designer Oiva Toikka since 1972 and in 2007 Vigna showcased his impeccable work with the introduction of his Birds by Vigna Collection. Less literal, Vigna’s creations are contemporary and use multiple layers of glass to bring out the intensive layered glass. Surprisingly heavy, the smooth and sleek lines of the design draw in its admirer and inspire awe.
