Lladró is a Spanish company based in Tavernes Blanques, Valencia, that produces many high quality porcelain figurines.
The company was founded in 1953 by three brothers, Juan, José and Vicente Lladró, in the village of Almácera near Valencia. Starting with items such as vases and jugs, it wasn't until 1956 that they started producing the sculptures for which they are now most famous. Enthusiasm for the items produced by the Lladró brothers saw their small workshop expand several times until eventually they moved to Tavernes Blanques in 1958.
Lladró creates all its figurines in the City of Porcelain, located in Tavernes Blanques (Valencia). The first buildings were opened in 1969 and with the company’s global expansion they were enlarged to reach 100,000 sq. feet.The City of Porcelain is a large area designed for artistic creation, with bright studios and workshops, within a large complex that also has sports facilities and spacious gardens. The City of Porcelain is an open space for all those wishing to visit, thanks to a visitor’s program which allows you to watch artisans working on site and to visit the Lladró Museum. Every year over 15,000 lovers of Lladró porcelain visit the complex.
Every Lladró piece of work is the result of a laborious artistic process. Sculptors follow their own inspiration but also perform, if the work requires it, a meticulous process of research and documentation. This is often the case with pieces or collections that reflect other cultures. Every Lladro creation begins with an artistic inspiration. The sculptor then makes the first sketch of the new figure in clay, which is examined and approved by the Creativity Committee, made up by many members, one of whom comes from the Lladró family. The sketch, in clay, is reproduced in plaster to provide the first mold, which will in turn become the definitive mold for the porcelain figurine. A mid-sized figurine may need between 15 and 20 molds and up to 300 for complex pieces. The fragments coming from these molds are joined by liquid porcelain paste to obtain an exact reproduction of the original model.
Once the figurine is reconstructed, the decoration process starts
Once the figurine is reconstructed, the decoration process starts. In compliance with the sculptor’s instructions, and the surface of the piece –so far smooth– it is carved with delicate motifs that will give it its final appearance. It is at this point that the face on the sculpture gets its expression and the tiniest details are delicately crafted. In addition, the figurine is painted and if it requires a glossy finish is later covered with a coat of varnish, which grants it that crystalline look that is so characteristic of Lladró. Many Lladró sculptures display one of the most valued and differentiating features of the brand: flowers. Each one is fully made, petal by petal, following a very delicate process in order to obtain unique, unrepeatable creations.
