Overview
More
A professional designer goldsmith for 45 years, ROBERTO VENGOECHEA’S Avant-Garde collection showcases futuristic and innovative designs which defy the conventional forms and genres, yet are practical in their form and fit. Challenging acceptable 21st century jewelry traditions, with square, architectural and geometric shapes, these unusual designs push the boundaries of ‘thinking outside the box.’ “Like Gaudi, I like to fuse organic with architectural design in a futuristic manner. I consider myself a sculptor first and a jeweler second.” Vengoechea opened his Gallery and studio in 1996, located in Black Mountain, NC. Browse this quaint, artisan-owned gallery in a museum-quality setting, with recessed shadow boxes which entice the viewer to study the contents of each box. His work is also available in select galleries in North Carolina. Vengoechea also teaches tourists and visitors a popular hands-on 1 day workshop (by appointment – 2 people per class) where each participant takes home their own hand-made work. “It’s all about the experience” as well as being lots of fun.
