When metalwork is life changing

  • • Teresa feels nature is an inexhaustible source of ideas
  • • She works with bronze, copper, aluminium, alpaca silver and brass
  • • She also uses sea urchins, wood and hand-blown glass

Madrid-born Teresa De La Pisa studied fashion design and worked as a head designer for six years. In 2008, when she was interviewing for a new position at a big international fashion brand, she started modelling a long wire, creating a poem for her husband, which she displayed on a wall. “And boom, my life changed! Several home interior designers and clients started to call me and in my first years as an artist I had three magazine covers. That’s how I started and I have never stopped.” Teresa lives and works in Luxembourg, and spends her free time at Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, which is another important source of inspiration.

Agate Tree

Teresa loves mixing colours. The idea for this piece was to create a sense of rounded volume playing with the bright colours of agate cut into thin strips. Turquoise combines with green and purple to give the effect of autumn leaves.

Tropical Leaves

Tropical plants inspired this shiny tree-like sculpture made up of thin leaves of brass. Each leaf has been cut and hammered individually. Teresa then polishes the edges and solders all the pieces together to create the final shape.

Balls

A set of glass balls, of varying size and colour, stretch upwards on brass rods like a tree canopy. The metal rods are worked into a central gilded stone block.

I’m Back

Five flat glass spheres are suspended like leaves from the end of branches made of twisted metal rods, planted into a gilded stone block. The inspiration for each piece comes as Teresa works on it, one element leading to the next.
