Between Art and Design

Williams Darugar is a research and experimentation project born from the encounter between a Persian artist and an Italian designer. Each jewel of the collection is a unique and unrepeatable piece, a micro sculpture to be worn completely handmade with the lost wax casting method, a sculptural technique introduced in the Bronze Age and developed over the centuries in Persian, Etruscan, Roman art , Greek and in monumental sculpture.
