PRODUCTION PROCESS

The drawings are captured in a mock-up that is digitized. The original aluminum mold is obtained by means of a lathe.

After being approved by the sculptor, the polyurethane resin is injected into the mold, which is demolded after drying.

Each sculpture is finished with a white mineral filler and carefully polished by hand.

The original mold incorporates Jaume Plensa’s signature in bas-relief.

The books, designed and signed one by one by the artist, are hand-sewn with high quality vegetable thread.

After numbering each copy, the binding of each volume is handcrafted by experts.

The artisan incorporates the covers, dry-stamped, taking care of every detail.

The pedestal, with typography created by the sculptor, is made by hand by adding liquid black resin inside a mold.

Jaume Plensa

Jaume Plensa

(1955) The multifaceted artist experiments with sculpture and engraving, being one of the Spanish plastic artists with more international projection. His early works played with volume, space and tension; large sculptures molded with multiple materials: iron, glass, resin… An artist who has always given great importance to his literary references and his own inner world.

One of the most significant parts of Plensa’s work is in the field of sculpture in public space. His sculptures are present in some of the leading countries, such as the United States, Germany, Japan, England, Canada and France.
