OrtizGadler

Unique paper art and jewellery handmade in Italy.

Rovereto, Trentino-Alto Adige

Announcement    We are Ethel Ortiz and Dolores Gadler, mother and daughter (Ethel doesn't want to be on the photo so it's just me, Dolores). Our studio is placed in Rovereto, a beautiful town in the North of Italy by the Adige river and surrounded by the Alps.

Through our work we pursue our personal passion for fairytales. We create wonderful jewellery and shadow boxes completely in paper inspired by the popular tales.

We have chosen the art of collage to create our works. We use magazine papers, antique books, old letters and postcards to make our characters and set them in magic scenarios. In the creative process we deconstruct the pre-existing media and transform the materials into new elements with a life of their own. In his way we become taletellers that give a personal interpretation to the stories we narrate.

The production process is completely handmade. Each shadow box is made of different parts that we cut and model by hand for volume and carefully assemble in wooden boxes to compose the various scenes. The pins and earrings are printed on to high quality paper, cut by hand and customized with vintage elements or Swarovski beads and enamelled and assemble into unique jewellery.

You can find our creations in many important art museums in Italy (Venice, Rome, Milan, Turin, Mantua, Bologna) as well as art galleries and very special shops in Italy and abroad (UK and Spain).

Each of our creations contains lots of particulars to discover and rediscover. Come and visit our shop!
