Lluís Comín Vilajosana

Published: 14.10.2020

Intro
Lluís Comín Vilajosana, was born in Barcelona in November 14, 1958. He learns a trade and the art in the jewellery workshop of his father. Degree in gemmology with the specialty in diamonds by the University of Barcelona, by the Gemmological Association of Great Britain and in jewelry by the Massana School.

Statement

From a young age, it was clear that I wanted to make a type of jewelry that was not merely ornamental. The jewel is my way of expressing myself artistically with total liberdat, the only condition is that it is related and can be used by a person. I usually work with series, I never know how many pieces, I stop when I think that I have nothing else to say on the subject. I try to create a symbiosis between the jewel and its wearer, so that the two become rich. I feel like a filter trying to express the nuances of the world from my point of view. Few contemporary jewelers come from a family tradition and I was lucky enough to learn the trade with my father and now it is my daughter Elena who learns from me, I feel like the link of a very old chain that transmits ancestral knowledge.
