Taller de Joieria
Elke Embo aposta per la joieria d’autor, per una joieria de disseny i creativitat, on les peces uniques, partint d’una visió contemporània, son una clara manifestació artística, plenes de valors i d’expressivitat.
Perque una joia és alguna cosa més que una joia.
El taller i la botiga comparteixen un sol espai, creant així un ambient molt especial.
Elke Embo was born on February 16, 1972 in Ghent, in the Flemish part of Belgium. At the age of 7, she fell madly in love with a white Camargue horse named Paloma, which became her first muse. Her love for horses and drawing was born, and has only grown over the years.
All her life, Elke has always been passionate about art, and has combined her studies and her work (Landscape Designer) with “expression” in all its forms, not only on paper, but also as a Singer in a Rock Band or in a Gospel Choir, Actress in a TV series, etc., She was naturally attracted by drawing and painting horses, although little by little she discovered a peculiar love for working with iron and copper.
She decided to engage deeply in art in 2013, learning the techniques in several training courses with professionals, such as the Ceramics School of Ramon Fort in Llers and Angel Vera in Granada. She completed several months of online training at Alfred University in New York studying Glaze Online Formulation.
She created the artistic concept of the hotel Mas Renart as a decorator and sculptor by decorating all its suites and exteriors.
Over the years, Elke’s love for metal and forge has turned into a passion and she explored everything she could in that concept.
The workshop that she followed in 2015 with Jeweler Núria Soley began as a simple additional exploration in the field of metal, but seemed to meet all her artistic concerns. From 2017 to date, at the Susana Alonso de Foixà School of Jewelery, she perfected her formation adding every possible technique, such enamels and lost wax, and professional workshops like Color on Metal by Maria Sais Fluvià among others.
Elke also studied as an instructor, giving summer art classes to young people, to help them develop the same enthusiasm that she had for art.
Elke currently lives and works as a Jeweler and Sculptor in her own Atelier Aritjol in Cantallops, Alt Empordà (Catalunya), surrounded by mountains and near the sea. Of course, horses are very near…
