We had the opportunity to work together with one of the references of glass art in our country, Rosa Picó. He dedicated his life to arts and crafts, extending the influence of early 20th-century modernist artists and glass artisans in our city to the present day. He also learned from the masters of Murano and Art Nouveau, developing a personal style centered on geometry and nature. She was a master, both as an artist and as a professor at the Barcelona School of Arts and Crafts, where she served as director of the School for a few years.
Rosa left us at the very beginning of 2022. It was an honor for us to involve his talent in one of our works, which was one of her last. She created three exclusive stained glass windows for one of our renovations with the technics of Tiffany glass. This assembly technique consists of joining the cut pieces, by thin sheets of copper glued to the edge of the glass and then soldered together. This technic was born, developed and produced from 1878 to 1933 at the Tiffany Studios in New York, by Louis Comfort Tiffany and other artists such as Clara Driscoll, Agnes F. Northrop, and Frederick Wilson.
May this post be our tribute to Rosa, and an enjoyment of her work.
