Nonni 1-10

Olivia Tognelli examen2019, form

Very simple things can make us markedly emotional. 

These glass objects are based on childhood memories from my nonni.

My grandparents’ house was different from my home and this fascinated me when I was a child. Many of these memories and occasions retain a special value to me even today. Based on my own experiences and memories of their home and their lives I have created these decorative objects.

For me this is a way of celebrating their everyday lives that I got to be such a big part of. I also want to emphasize the importance to pause in a digital world with a constantly accelerating tempo.
