TOURBILLON – 2011 - silver gold plated.
Delfina Delettrez is an experimenter engaged in a technical and aesthetic revolution which can be found only in the works of pioneers such as Rene Lalique: no longer a craftman dealing with minor arts, but an all round artist. Delfina is a herald of organic and metaphysical iperdecorativism that never ceases to amaze and inspire. Until September 10.
