Born in Barcelona in 1925, Jordi Aguadé founded his pottery studio in 1950. He studied in Barcelona and was the apprentice to the legendary ceramicist Josep Llorens Artigas at the time that Artigas’ workshop collaborated with the genius painter Joan Miró on some of his large ceramic murals. Aguadé completed his training in Paris and in Sweden, where he was influenced by Scandinavian aesthetic trends. Back in Barcelona, the designs of his pottery figures and his stoneware caused sensation and stirred up the ceramics market.
Jordi Aguadé was one of the founding members of "The Cantonada", a group of multidisciplinary design of great relevance during the 60’s and 70’s. Since 2003 he is member of the Catalan Royal Academy for the Fine Arts and in 2015 he was awarded the Creu de Sant Jordi, one of the highest awards that a person can receive from the Catalan Government.
From 1988 Pere Aguadé, son of the founder, takes the reins of the family business. Without losing the origins and with great respect for tradition, Pere Aguadé modernizes business and opens it up to new designers, betting on a cutting edge product and maintaining the high quality standard.
Aguadé Ceràmica is consolidated as a reference for ceramics and since 2006 specializes in the manufacture of customized products, creating ad hoc stoneware for some of the most prestigious restaurants, both nationally and internationally.
Aguadé Ceràmica pieces have a signature and a personality that makes them easily recognizable and distinguishable. The blue of the Mediterranean, the colors of the Earth, animals or flowers from our surrounding nature, clean lines... Aguadé stoneware finds inspiration in the environment and gives life to sets of pieces that are a delight for the senses. They are friendly ceramics to live with, products to be used and enjoyed and that turn everyday moments into a small celebration.
