Christo and Jean-Claude | The Floating Piers 2014 - 2016 | Lake Iseo, Italy
The Floating Piers Jewellery Project by Zora Romanska Dedicated to Christo and Jean-Claude
I'm very exited about the art works of Christo and Jean-Claude and I adore their talent. I'm very happy and feel privileged to experience Christo's work of art by walking on it from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which was framed by The Floating Piers.
Honoring this last project of Christo I have made a limited pieces of jewelleries using small parts of the orange textile used to cover the piers. By creating these unique handmade jewelleries I want to conserve a small part of the magic and the wide horizons that Christo has opened with his art.

The Floating Piers 2014 - 2016 | Lake Iseo, Italy
The Floating Piers was first conceived by Christo and Jeanne-Claude together in 1970. It was Christo’s first large-scale project since Christo and Jeanne-Claude realized The Gates in 2005, and since Jeanne-Claude passed away in 2009. As with all of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s projects,The Floating Piers was funded entirely through the sale of Christo’s original works of art. After the 16-day exhibition, all components were removed and industrially recycled.
