Natura Omnia Artes Magistra, Compendium of Contemporary Lapidary Materials
Madison Hill, Anna Maria Massinelli
The extraordinary chromatic palette offered by the mineral world has always been a stimulating element for the artist's imagination because it allows for the creation of a harmonious continuity between the creative process and the natural element. This book explores the approach of the artists of the past towards this fascinating 'underground' world through an overview of the different ways of using semi-precious stones and the techniques developed to enhance their unlimited expressive potential.
The volume also introduces an unprecedented, contemporary reinterpretation of the stone mosaic. The vast collection of the materials illustrated allows a snapshot of the stones available on the market today and constitutes a valuable reference tool for artists, collectors, geologists and academics.
