Emilia Castillo - objets d’art


Emilia Castillo’s work - porcelain with inlaid sterling silver and tableware that combines silverplate with alabaster, black onyx and malachite - takes simple forms from nature and transforms them into art.  A sinuous malachite salamander is the handle on a silver pitcher;  sterling silver tadpoles decorate porcelain plates with frogs balanced on the rim; scorpions and snakes rendered in stone crawl across serving pieces.  Even her most elegant and functional pieces surprise with their playfulness.
