One of the unmistakeable identifiers of Luis Uribetxebarría’s work is the reverse side of his work.

Luis has upheld the Byzantine tradition by offering us the gift of delicate lace fretwork on the back of his pieces.

The artist’s patient soul concentrates on the gold as, with expert hands he works on the organic shapes with infinite delicacy. As is nature, so is Luis: eccentric.

In the exquisite and delicate gold working which Luis presents us, on the reverse of each of his works, can be recognised the great gold working master who honours and respects tradition.

Luis reminds us of the great family sagas of Italian goldsmiths. For him every millimetre of his work is a space in which his inspiration can take flight.
