Silvina Spravkin, Pietrasanta based sculptor forges alchemical forms in marble and mosaic ____________ Pietrasanta Artists & Sculptors, 2013


Silvina Spravkin, Argentinian sculptor, has lived and worked in Pietrasanta for 30 years. Traveling through Europe she discovered Pietrasanta, and its intense artistic and artisanal life, which she then made her home. She works in marble and in mosaic; her sculptures are intimate, magical and transformative, and linger between memories and dreams of a life lived in harmony with the earth

  1. This is such engrossing work for its scale. I think you have shown some by her before…I remember bees. The love letter piece is exquisite. Will I be able to see some in person in September, do you think?

    • Hey Star, this is the first of Silvina Spravkin’s work that we post… it IS truly wonderful work. Some of it is at the Paola Raffo Gallery in town…
      Keep in touch and we’ll see what we can pull off…
