The JORCG has delivered the Craft Award to Lluís Comín to know how to look at the jewelry with a new look, with personal contributions and a creative look, more conceptual, in the craft industry.
Contemporary artisan with more than 40 years of experience, Lluís Comín, began the trade when he was 16 years old, combining studies at the Massana school with work at the workshop with his father. He is a gemologist and diamond specialist at the University of Barcelona and the Gemmological Association of Great Britain. 

Comín understands jewelry as a form of artistic communication and not just as an ornament. For this artist, the relationship of the piece with his bearer is unique. According to his own words: "Art is not merely a way to interpret reality, it is as well a way to modify it." His work can be found in his own gallery "66mistral gallery" and in galleries and exhibitions from different countries in Europe, America and more recently Asia; in fact his recognition transcends the Spanish territory, and it already reaches an international level.
