Porcelain - Lladro Collection
All Lladro pieces are handmade in the brand's workshops in The City or Porceliain (located in Valencia, Spain), following an entirely artisan process.
From the initial sketches to the final firing at high temperatures, each step in the process is carried out by artists and artisans working under the attentice eyes of the Lladro family.
Employing various techniques of modeling in clay or pristicine, the sculpture creates the volumes and shapes of the sketch, making the most of this material before continuing in the more rigid support of plaster, in which all the details, textures and features that complete the original piece are engraved.
Once the modeling is finished, the piece is divided into as many fragments as necessary for the work to be reproduced in porcelain. From each of the resulting fragments, a mold is obtained and filled with liquid porcelain paste in order to create the different parts of the figurine. Expert hands then put the work together using porcelain paste for adhesive.
We carry these pieces and more in our galleries. If interested, please call us at (415)397-4119.
