Artist list

Manufacturas Autenticas Xan, Sara Mas
The main ambition of the EASD Valencia (School of Art and  Design of Valencia) has been to offer an opportunity for the training and the promotion of creative talents. In 2001, during the celebration of its 150th anniversary, the ancient teachings of jewellery were converted into a Higher Level Training Course of Artistic Jewellery. Having in mind a dynamic growth and improvement, and driven by the effort of the members of the department, this goal has been achieved in 2014 with the introduction of the Bachelor in Jewellery and Object.


Manufacturas Autenticas Xan
My academic training prior to jewelry, I am an Industrial Technical Engineer and Industrial Designer, has always had a relationship with design, so working from an object has always been very recurrent for me. For a long time my professional and artistic career has been based above all on the recovery, reuse or recycling of objects or materials to create different ones, mainly in the field of furniture, lighting, decoration and interior design. When starting jewelry studies, in addition to giving my pieces that personal imprint of recycling and reuse, I have always been interested in my designs having some movement, that the jewel performs some action and that it interacts with its wearer or with the person who he admires it, causing a feeling of surprise or even dialogue, thus increasing the value of the jewel itself. So for this project I have used some household items to turn them into jewelery, the Philips electric razors. It has always been an object that has caught my attention a lot, for its design, its shapes, its mechanisms ... Especially the old ones of the Philips brand. They seem to me to be well-designed objects, simple and without too many decorations, with attractive shapes and good color combinations.

These razors, when disassembled and separate their mechanical part, the shapes of their bodies allow to incorporate certain electronic elements such as LEDs and circuits to emit sounds. Furthermore, the blade support systems are actuated by a button which opens said support, providing dynamism to the pieces. The theme of the project is defined by the title, which is simply a pun on the brooches and the objects chosen to make them: ShAVE THE BROOCHES - Shave shaving. - Save from saving. On the one hand, the title launches a message of salvation for the brooches, with the intention of giving them a new meaning and giving them more life, since the idea is to make brooches that are not simply static objects and that do not say anything beyond their mere contemplation or aesthetic character but also they interact with the viewer in a more dynamic way

On the other hand, it defines the main elements that make up the project, the razors. They are brooches that surprise, that tell you beautiful things, that make you laugh and dance ... but above all, they are pieces that create a dialogue between the wearer and the person who admires him.​



Sara Mas
The artist started in the world of jewellery in 2015, through the hand of a goldsmith in Artà (Mallorca). After getting to know the world of contemporary jewellery at Melting Point Valencia 2016, which is held in her home town, she decides to set out on her life towards this sector which she calls "a world full of things to discover".

The sensitivity, creativity and variation of materials in the pieces is one of the reasons why Sara Mas decides to begin her artistic studies of jewelry in the EASD Valencia, in 2016. Two years later, she had the opportunity to go on an international study exchange to Tallinn (Estonia), at the Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA), within the jewellery and blacksmithing department during the 2018-2019 academic year. With the new knowledge learned about the world of iron and an investigation of both materials and forms, her final project, Personal Succession, was born.  

Throughout this period of study, he has participated in various group exhibitions such as Melting Point Valencia 2018 (Spain); Athens Jewellry week 2019 (Greece); Off Joya Barcelona 2019 (Spain); and Munich Jewellry week 2019 (Germany). She has also been selected for the Enjoiat 2019 awards, in the student category and winner of the Artesanía Comunidad Valenciana 2019 awards, in the New Talents category.
