Edel and Roberto: They are long-standing artists, they have had several exhibitions in Europe and Latin America, and now they have their art studio in Asturias. They are registered in Aicoa, everything they do has a certificate of work of art.
In 2016 we decided to start a new life from scratch, changing from the environment to our work. We chose a place with a privileged natural environment, where time goes at a different pace, the countrywomen of the area are affectionate, and they also have a bun called “coleta o enfilada” which is the richest in the region: It is Asturias, north of Spain.
Edeltraud was Edel’s grandmother, she immigrated to Argentina when she was very young. There she had a family of five children with her husband, while working in a store and at the same time making sculptures. She died very young due to a serious illness, for that reason, Edel never met her in person, but through family stories.
This is our tribute to her, wherever you are “grandma” from Asturias with love.

And finally, he found ceramics in Talavera de la Reina (Toledo) where he studied.
