Ramón Puig Cuyàs
For Ramón Puig Cuyàs, creating is his great adventure. Each piece of jewellery emerges after a long process wrought from repetition, rehearsal, elimination, selection and decision, as well as an evolution of feelings, emotions, certainties and doubts. Assemblies of ‘visual itineraries’ that one’s eyes can wander around, exploring every nook and cranny of the composition, his pieces are like messages sent out into the world in the hope that someone will want to see and understand them.
Ramón Puig Cuyàs was born in Mataró in Spain in 1953. He studied at Barcelona’s Escola Massana, where he has taught since 1977 and is currently department head. He has won numerous awards and is three times winner of the Herbert Hofmann Prize. Ramón’s work is exhibited internationally and held in collections including the Marzee Collection, Museu del Disseny and Museu de las Artes Decoratives in Barcelona, Die Neue Sammlung in Munich, Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim, the Museum of Arts and Design and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York.
