“Air Mail” is the Genesis of my Envelope Series which is still ongoing…

“Air Mail” The “Bozzetto” Silvina Spravkin, (1980) Clay.

This is the first piece that I made of what became an ongoing Series of Envelopes. My envelopes are inspired by a synthesis of emotional states. Thus they are symbolic in their content and meaning. I was always struck by the impact that the envelope, in itself, has; the contents to me become abstracted over time.  That’s why the stamp plays an important role in the whole – the front and the back have the same magical intensity. The photo above is of the “Bozzetto” – the clay model, which is now in the collection of the Museo dei Bozzetti, in Pietrasanta.
