PIERANGELO GHELARDINI   ARTISAN AND PARTNER

Holding her own side by side with the team has earned her their respect if not more than a little admiration.

She is the voice of calm and reason that the artists and artisans turn to when they need a solution for anything from how to create an export document to shipping sculpture worldwide. She is our liason between everything that is made at the studio and the how and when it all gets shipped around the globe.
