About Matt Products
The Matt line of jewelry making products sets the standard for high-quality and convenience in the
wax modeling process. Matt carving waxes, tools and educational materials have been designed to make
wax-working simpler and faster---with more professional results.
With over 30 years of contributing his expertise to New York City manufacturing firms, jeweler, model maker and author, Adolfo Mattiello developed this product line as he came across the need to facilitate the wax model-making process, while delivering consistent, accurate product.
Adolfo began his career with an introduction to the art and science of jewelry making in Italy, as well as Argentina where he studied engineering. In New York City he continued his studies at the School of Visual Arts and the Fashion Institue of Technology. His background in industrial and jewelry design provides a valuable dynamic in his approach to professional model making and wax working.
As an educator, he has taught model-making classes at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, at Highline College in Washington and has held workshops and demonstrated his products at jewelry trade shows internationally for Rio Grande.
