Despina is a collection of artworks, each unique and original, born of researches on the aesthetic nature of metals: iron, steel, copper and brass are treated by experimenting new processing techniques and different chromatic combinations.

Iron is a living material, it protects itself from atmospheric agents by oxidizing and taking dark and patchy shades (polychromies).
