Internationally known for it’s unique personality, character and originality, the Artesania Rinconada Collection is truly one of the finest examples of contemporary ceramic design. Artesania Rinconada figurines are carefully hand-carved and detailed in fine grain earthenware ceramic material. Rinconada’s Classic Collection was created by twin brothers Jesus and Javier Carbajales during the fall of 1972 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The Carbajales were born in Spain in 1930 and moved with their family to Uruguay when the Spanish Civil War erupted in 1936. The brothers, however, did not forget their artistic roots. They were strongly influenced by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro; three Spanish artists whose work dominated spanish art in the first half of the 20th century.

In recent years Rinconada has evolved under a new factory director with exciting new creativity and artistic vision. Under his leadership Artesania Rinconada developed a series of gold and platinum accented animal figurines to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the original Classic Collection. These new designs formed the beginning of the Silver Anniversary Collection.
