Aria  Aradia  Nista
Hummingbird pendant in 18ct gold by Aria Aradia Nista with urushi lacquer for Atelier Ikigai.

Blending ancient art and crafts with modern design is a hallmark of Atelier Ikigai.


Aria' s artwork combines her classical Florentine and Parisian background with new innovative technologies and her studies on Eastern aesthetics and philosophies.

 

With her work, she brings European design and techniques to a new level by embracing this awareness

of Japanese skills and 21st Century views.

 

The essentials of both worlds are combined to bring a unique take on art and design that results

in timeless art jewellery, canvas mixed media art and sculptures.
