“Meritxell Tembleque and Joaquim Falcó are among the representatives of the New Glass movement in Spain. They chose glass as the medium of their artistic trajectory. In the landscape of art glass and especially on the European stage it is not rare to find couples that sign together the authorship of their works. This Catalan couple, however, contributes to the artistic effort in a way that is similar to the theory of communicating vessels: ideas and technical realization are naturally shared and balanced.

Their joint work is meticulous and thoughtful, they deeply investigate a concept through series of sculptures. They are remarkable in their creativity and in their relentless effort to discover and explore new techniques and languages, while preserving their own style, maintaining true to themselves.”

Luisa Martínez García, MAVA Director (Glass Art Museum of Alcorcón)
