Daniele Pozzi was born in Brescia in 1984. The son and grandson of painters, he’s developed a flair for drawing, modelling and moulding since his early childhood, and attended the Olivieri Arts High School in Sarezzo (BS), standing out in these subjects. After graduation in 2002, he followed goldsmith’s art classes at the C.A.P.A.C. Vocational School in Milan: embossing, chiselling, design, engraving and gem setting, with further apprenticeships in workshops of specialised craftsmen in Italy and, as regards gem setting, in Lyon and Vicenza.All his engravings are based on customised drawings, following a thorough research on subjects and ornaments. Once the drawing is transferred onto a object, various techniques are used to make the object more and more sophisticated: burin for details, hammer and awl to create a greater depth, chiselling to model a low-relief (both in steel and in gold), gold inlays (both pure and coloured) and gem setting (precious or semi-precious gemstones).
