What does Semana Santa mean for you?
It is a moment of such high spirituality that even those who are not devout are drawn to it. It is like a fiesta, where people from all ages and walks of life participate. It stands for our cultural and family identity, and we work all year to see our creations be part of it.
How do you forge a relationship with the Seville brotherhoods?
The relationship is based on trust, personal contacts and word of mouth. The floats are very elaborate, as are the altarpieces in the churches. We are able to craft one to three new pieces every year, and then we work on maintenance and restoration of the existing ones.

What's your working process?
We work closely with the client as we go through all the different steps of designing and crafting. It is like a jigsaw; each part is made separately through moulding, carving, chiselling, melting, plating and polishing. It requires skill and experience, as well as teamwork; it's very rewarding.
Is Seville your main source of inspiration?
Definitely; we have made pieces inspired by elements of the city’s architecture. However, our craft draws inspiration from all different periods in the history of art, such as Classicism and Neoclassicism, Baroque, Renaissance, Rococo, as well as nature and religious imagery.
