GLORIA FERRER ROM

My first contact with ceramics began in 1976 at Llotja school in Barcelona, studying Applied Arts and specialising in ceramics and in particular in stoneware and refractory clay.

In 1981, along with my fellow classmates Eulàlia Oliver and Isabel Serra, I founded the Bugambilia Workshop, where we develop utilitarian ceramics, artistic ceramics and also customized pottery for companies. Over the past 32 years we have shown our creative and artistic work in several National Art Exhibitions. We have also been in trade shows dedicated to decoration, home and gifts in order to promote our products associated with quality utilitarian pottery.

To this day I continue to work, experiment and evolve my work with ceramics.
