    Pieces of Eight presents Augurio, a collection by Juan Castro.

    "Augurio reflects an amalgam of aesthetics from the different cultures that have formed the history of my country, Spain. From the colours of elaborate Moroccan tiles, passing by the volcanic texture and landscape of my home islands, to votive religious crowns from the Visigothic Spanish civilisation; all of these pieces carry with them a juxtaposition of everything that has inspired me since my childhood.
     
    I have incorporated a pallet of colours from the Arabic influences in each corner of the south of Spain, and used a regal square cut for the gemstones, referencing the shapes and forms of Visigothic jewels and objects. These elements provide a personal interpretation and reflection back to my roots, from an artistic and anthropological viewpoint."
