ABOUT US

When we were still children, playing in the studio of our father Alessandro Stenico, a well-known sculptor, we had the good luck to play and amuse ourselves with a whole range of materials, experimenting with them and developing our manual dexterity. The studio, which was an Aladdin’s cave for us, contained, among many other items, a forge and a small anvil and so it was that our first contact with iron was as casual and spontaneous as with any toy, then becoming increasingly important to us in the same way that any other game could.¬†Working with iron then was for us initially self-taught but soon we became aware of the need to study carefully, firstly, shapes and forms – our awareness being stimulated by the world around us – and, secondly, the technical aspect which up till that point we had approached intuitively.
