Barbara Uderzo, born in Vicenza (Italy) in 1965, lives and works in Creazzo (Vicenza) and Milan. She graduated in Painting from the School of Fine Arts in Venice. In 1990 she attended the first course in Production Assistant and Goldsmith Design at the School of Arts and Crafts in Vicenza, which were followed by gemology, computer design, lost-wax casting and wax modelling of jewels. Her jewels are the result of research and experimentation, a combination of precious materials with wood, plastic paper, wax, but also with edible products such as sugar, gummy candies, chocolate, and ice. Her interest also dwells on creating ephemeral objects in which the conceptual part of the work is the foundation, playfully and ironically she highlights the passage of the project and the user’s reaction. In 2010 she opened her “the blob house”- studio in Milan.
