Made By Hand
From the moment we set foot in a historical building, ‘Artesanía Nazarí’ begins the study of the different motifs and carvings on the walls created by the artisans of the era. Among the enormous amounts of motifs, we choose a selection and study them in great detail (looking at size, form, location within the historical building, etc.) and in respect of the other motifs. This all leads to the selection of the most representative motifs, which convey to the client the skills the artisan of said era had in designing and carving. They would include motifs of vegetables, epigraphs or shapes, and on occasion motifs of figures or animals.
Before completion, every single piece we create in the workshop is worked on by hand. This leaves each piece with a unique finish in both shape, but also ornamentation due to the application of patinas and diverse colours which form part of each piece’s polychromy.
The pieces are reproduced in different dimensions to the original works, adapting the motifs and producing new designs so the pieces or fragments selected have a collective vision while still being unique. In order to avoid forgery, we also introduce new motifs to ensure the pieces are different.
