Welcome to the world of monica castiglioni Since 1979

Jewel designer, emotional photographer, experimenter, curious, passionate researcher, fellow of new technologies and at the same time a lover of ancient techniques of material handcraft.

Jewel designer, fotografa emozionale, sperimentatrice, ricercatrice curiosa, appassionata cultrice di nuove tecnologie e nello stesso tempo amante delle antiche tecniche di lavorazione della materia.


Monica Castiglioni is an internationally acclaimed jewellery designer. Design and photography are her two most visible talents. She lives between Milano and Brooklyn. Her workshop-store in Milano is in a neighborhood called “Isola” (Island), a new name to bear in mind if you wish to discover new amazing artists and artistic trends. New York City is her home away from home that she relentlessly photographed over and over again.

Monica Castiglioni ha legato il suo nome al design internazionale dei gioielli. La sua arte si divide tra la fotografia e il design, tra Milano e New York. Il suo atelier milanese e’ situato nel quartiere Isola, il nome nuovo della cultura artistica. A New York, sua seconda citta’, ha dedicato un’intera serie di fotografie.

Monica is a jewellery designer and an emotional photographer. Her book on the poodles in New York City is truly wonderful. Yet, she also likes experimenting, researching with utmost curiosity, exploring new technologies with a great deal of passion and is also in love with century-old processing techniques.

Jewel designer, assolutamente sì, ma anche fotografa emozionale, stupendo il suo volume sulle pozzanghere di New York, sperimentatrice, ricercatrice curiosa, appassionata cultrice di nuove tecnologie e nello stesso tempo amante delle antiche tecniche di lavorazione della materia.

With Love

Born in Milano, Monica has chosen to open her workshop-store in her home away from home, Brooklyn, where she makes her jewels, most of which single pieces. «My problem is that I make lots of jewels, I can’t stop it! ». Indeed, her show-room in Milano is filled with lots of her creations, some of which are actual sculptures that are just perfect if displayed or hanged on a wall, as one would do with a painting.

Nata a Milano, ha scelto tuttavia New York per la sede del suo atelier, la sua città d'adozione, e dove principalmente produce i suoi molti pezzi unici. «Il mio problema è la quantità, io produco moltissimo, non so fermarmi». E davvero il suo show-room di Milano è ricco di moltissime sue creazioni, alcune quasi sculture che sono perfette anche solo esibite come soprammobile o appese come un dipinto.


Akio Nukaga’s Fifth Solo Exhibition in New York

Opening Reception Friday December 13 from 5 - 8 pm
268 Court St. Brooklyn, NY 11231

Anzu New York is pleased to present the Fifth Solo Exhibition of works by Akio Nukaga, master ceramist based in Kasama Japan.

The exhibition will include both his new Design pieces, as well as his beloved Everyday pieces. Nukaga says “My Design Pieces are my new passion. I believe that my Everyday Pieces are meant for everyday use with joy. The most important part of my work is that people can enjoy the organic texture of soil and glaze.”

At this exhibition Nukaga will show his signature lines, “Pleated Work”, “Black Au Noir”, “Indigo” and a new Series. All are rustic and modern, tactile and practical, and of cause simply beautiful.
