Ester Pedescoll

Ester was born in Escaldes Engordany, Andorra, in 1979. She graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona in 2004 and she also has an Applied Arts Diploma in Sculpture from the Massana school (Barcelona). At present she complements her art studies with those of jewellery at the Can Batlló School in Barcelona.
Her work has been recognized in Andorra with the "XV Poster of Andorra Art Prizes", "Sergi Mas Prizes" and with an individual exhibition in the "Arteria" exhibition space. Her work has also been recognised abroad thanks to the competition “The Art of Sport, Artistic Proposals” in the Bernat Picornell centre of Barcelona. Her works are in the permanent art collection of the Vila Casas Foundation, which sponsors “Contemporary Sculpture Prize" in Palafrugell of which she has been a finalist for several years. She has also had commissions such as the making and installation of the “Mitre i Bàcul” sculpture in homage to Monsignor Joan Martí i Alanís for Sant Ermengol school in Andorra.      

Having had a thorough workshop training, Ester is capable of mastering complicated forms, which when complete generate a subtle harmony based on natural elements.
She employs various techniques, from woodcarving or cold iron forging to working wood with moulds. The sheets of iron or wood curve as if they could retract to become elements of protection against external aggression.
Since her introduction to goldsmithing, she now creates smaller pieces conceived directly at the jeweller's workbench in silver and brass.
Far from being purely technical, she introduces us to a personal and intimate world, full of references to human experiences, growth, changes, self-protection; our public image confronted with what we really are.
