A short history of the family workshop
The Serra family is an important lineage of Catalan potters for 3 generations. Antoni Serra Fiter, master of Joan Miró and Llorens Artigas, among others, began artistic ceramics at the beginning of the 20th century.
His sons Antonio, Enrique and Josep Serra founded the ceramic company in 1928.
Today, Jordi Serra, member of the third generation is still at the head of the workshop "Serra" in the Catalan town of Cornellá de Llobregat near Barcelona. He has been able to raise and perpetuate the "Serra" pottery workshop in the international art by perpetuating the family know-how with various exhibitions in countries such as France, Germany, Japan and the United States...
