In 2008, Lladro presented two of the latest editions in their Re-Cyclos collection at the Future Perfect in Brooklyn. The first series, by the British design team Committee, explored the evolution of love with three sets of porcelain figurines covered in a growing sea of ceramic flowers.
Since this month, Yareah magazine has dedicated the issue to Love, we think these three pieces are fantastic to represent this strange, inexplicable feeling.
Lladró was born in the mid-1950s as a small family workshop in Almácera (Spain). In 1958 they moved from their small workshop in the family home in Almácera to a factory located in the nearby town of Tavernes Blanques. The 1960s were years of strong growth and development. In fact, the studios in Tavernes were enlarged seven times until in 1969 the foundations were laid for what was to become Porcelain City, the home of Lladró porcelain art today. For over two decades since that time, Lladró has continued to spread throughout the world, fueling growth back home in tiny Tavernes. Today, with a headcount of two thousand people, Lladró markets its creations in over one hundred countries around the world.
