Italian Recycled Stone Company, as the name implies, is dedicated to reclaiming stone from natural stone manufacturing processes. We recently reported on its household products. Here, then, is the „Giardini Incantati“ (enchanted garden) collection comprising 7 miniature arrangements in an unusual implementation of natural stone remnants. The artist was Matthew Broussard. Partner was Studio Ghigos Ideas.
Broussard was born in Louisiana and raised in Dallas, Texas. After taking a degree in sculpture at the Maryland Institute in Baltimore in 1987 he worked as a blacksmith and artist before leaving for Europe. An essential part of his artistic sensibilities were formed during the three years spent tramping and working across Europe. The artist currently lives near Lago Maggiore in northern Italy and is represented in Germany by the De Freo Gallery group as well as by Galleria Tornabuoni in Florence and Galleria Bucaro in Varese, Italy. From 2001 he’s the curator of the Pocket Gallery.
