The Lladro Company began in the early 1950's. Three brothers, Juan, José and Vicente Lladró created their first piece in 1953. The business quickly grew and demand increased. In the 1960's the Lladro name became known Internationally. Lladro is loved worldwide and continues to be innovative in its Designs and Production methods.
"Every Lladró piece of work is the result of a laborious artistic process. Sculptors follow their own inspiration but also perform, if the work requires it, a meticulous process of research and documentation. This is often the case with pieces or collections that reflect other cultures."
"Every Lladro creation begins with an artistic inspiration. The sculptor then makes the first sketch of the new figure in clay, which is examined and approved by the Creativity Committee, made up by many members, one of whom comes from the Lladró family. The sketch, in clay, is reproduced in plaster to provide the first mold, which will in turn become the definitive mold for the porcelain figurine."
