location

California

After moving to San Francisco in 1994, Nerio Festa began creating natural, artistic pieces with steel, recycled metal, stones and paper. His works are inspired by the vines in wine country.

Before starting his own company, Nerio, an Italian sculptor, designed and built furniture and custom interiors for home offices and sailing yachts.

Naturally occurring stones, polished smooth by centuries of ocean tides and rivers, are a central element in the his designs. The idea of using these varied stones in his work grew out of a trip to Encinitas, a storybook beach in Southern California. He took some stones home, placed them around the living room and began experimenting with "wrapping" them within rusted steel rods from his workshop and transforming them into functional art.

      This really finishes off my house's entrance! A trick-or-treater's father said "it's the best door knocker I've ever seen!" I agree. A bit of class! Haven't found any cons yet.

        Comments about Stone Door Knocker:

        This is a great piece.. a bit pricey, but very sturdy. you need your own attachments (no big deal) don't expect the color that is displayed as they obviously vary. I was lucky, though I expected a tan stone, mine is grey..but it is going to be "coupled" with a mixed color stone front door mat, it works perfectly. I mix wood rock and steel in my decorating, and this is affixed to a log cabin on the Ocean! Really adds a nice, unique, sleek and modern touch to the over all rustic feel of my home.

        Very low quality

        About Me High-end Shopper

        Comments about Stone Door Knocker:

        Back plate thin and flimsy, sharp unfinished edges, scorch marks at weld point. Good design but very poorly executed. No screws or attaching hardware provided. At $5.98 it might be worth it for some, certainly not worth [$]! Very dissatisfied, even more so because I have to pay to return the item.

                [...] The item is excatly wnat I expected and looks great on my front door. The only negative, there was suposed to be an artist card included with information on the person who created this item. This was not in the package I received.
