This new decade sees the birth of the Lladró Atelier, a new space within Porcelain City and directed by Jaime Hayon, where the cooperation of the Lladró designers, joined forces with external projects to create new contemporary lines such as Metropolis, The Parrot Party and The Guest.

The Guest Collection

The 2010s brings new focus to the Oriental cultures.  From Thailand, through India, China and Japan, we  enjoy and admire the beauty and life messages expressed by Lladró sculptors.

     

THAI DANCERS           GODDESS LAKSMI           JAPANESE GARDEN

Goddess Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, material and spiritual prosperity, beauty and purity.  Her four hands represent the four aims of human life or “Purusharthas.”  The first one called Kama refers to pleasure and desire.  The second one is Artha, representing material wellbeing and wealth acquisition.  The third one Dharma, relates to the righteousness, duty and order in human life.  The last one is Moksha, or spiritual liberation, the ultimum union with the Supreme.  The Hindu civilization was built to achieve balance among these four Purusharthas.  Each of them is considered more important than the previous; however, all four are considered important in the development of the individual and the success of society.

The new collections do not allow us to forget the Lladró Classic Collection and its masterpieces.  Following is a selection representing this new decade and the imagination and expertise of their creators.

ELEGANT FOXTROT          JAZZ TRIO               PASSIONATE TANGO

Classic forms of music and dance served as sources of inspiration for some of these outstanding creations.  Using the Elegant Foxtrot, the irresistible rhythm of Jazz trio to the intensity of Passionate tango, our emotions are exulted when “porcelain takes on a life and movement of its own thanks to the mastery of artists able to connect arts so close and at once so distinct as music and sculpture.”
