Wunderkammer collection for decorated crystals
During the sixteenth century, in the courts of Europe, the idea of collecting samples of all kinds of human artifacts resulted in the creation of “Wunderkammer” or “Chambers of Wonder”: collections of incredibly beautiful objects put together without any apparent order or logic as their only purpose was to amaze and impress the beholder.
There is a definite identifying characteristic for all of the many and diverse objects of Calegaro’s collection of handicrafted silver. Silver is a precious metal with extraordinary properties which has been a known fact since the beginning of history.
The human hand can still create a wondrous kind of beauty, a beauty that amazes its beholder.
