Matias Augusto Di Carlo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1978. Descending from an Italian family with a long ironsmithing history, he became the fourth generation to follow the tradition. After twelve years following the antique training method he reached the level of Master Blacksmith, dominating the most complex and refined techniques within this Art. During the coming years he experimented with different processes and various types of metal discovering new forging and modelling techniques at very high temperatures, creating innovative textures with natural finishings.
In the most recent years and working from his study in the province of Malaga, Matias has developed a great interest for contemporary design and the search for a language of his own through which he can reinterpret the philosophy and pureness of this ancient knowledge. Matias currently works with his father and his team in the creation of furniture pieces and architectural & landscaping elements.
