Joan B. Guivernau i Sans

Joan Guivernau i Sans (Barcelona 1908 – 2001) was a traditional potter who worked on the restoration and reproduction of pieces of traditional Catalan ceramics. He also produced new creations especially from the 1950´s on wards. Without doubt his own ceramic activities generated the traits that so characterize the collector: the love and enjoyment of those pieces that had survived over time. Joan B. Guivernau collected a good selection of different types of tiles, which inhabited his workshop alongside other ceramic objects.
