Paul Robilotti, Model Maker and Wax Carver
If you were asked what Keith Richards, Ronald Reagan and Whoppie Goldberg could possibly have in common, you'd probably come up empty.
The fact is, they all have a piece of Paul Robilotti jewelry, either chosen for them by someone close to them who knows their taste or picked out by themselves. That goes to show you the range of his appeal and only hints at the level of quality in his work.
You can learn more about Paul and his jewelry designs at his website, reached here.
What many of his fans are not aware of -- and the point of this page -- is that he has also been a prolific and highly-sought-after modelmaker and wax carver for nearly 30 years. He has worked behind-the-scenes for many of New York City's most accomplished design houses on Madison Ave, Seventh Ave. and in the 47th St. Diamond District.
As a model maker, Paul designed, styled and built prototypes for such esteemed names as De Beers, Judith Leiber, Liz Claiborne and the artist Peter Max. The art community has also embraced Paul's work. He has collaborated with the Nahan Galleries in New Orleans and the Aaron Faber Gallery in New York City.
Find out more about his wax work at his jewelry model-making website here. That may not be necessary if you just look at the examples of his work that we have included here. The examples are a little over two inches in height except the flowers (a carnation and some peonies) which are about the size of a quarter. This work speaks for itself.
And when you contact him, remember to mention that you came to him from our site.
