Doris Maninger
Doris Maninger (born 1958 in Graz, Austria) lives and directs, teaches, draws, models and creates jewellery in Florence, Italy. Before starting to co-direct Alchimia, an important school of experimental jewelry, she studied painting and art history at the Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste of Vienna and subsequently moved to Italy, to the very South of it, to work as a restorator of fresco, guilding and wood sculpture. She then started dealing and experimenting with different materials and approaches towards restoration, painting, sculpture and textile design, combining traditional techniques with contemporary conceptual developments.
