Barcelona is a city that is known for its one of a kind art, with a large number of stores that offer unique pieces from local artists.
One of these shops is ART Escudellers which boasts an unbelievable collection of ceramics and glassware.
ART Escudellers has three stores in the heart of Barcelona: one on Carrer dels Escudellers, on Carrer Avinyó, and one on Carrer Montcada.

Stepping into this massive shop you won’t know where to begin as there are so many things to choose from. Walking through the gallery you will find traditional ceramics like bowls, plates, and spoon rests that are both beautiful and functional around the house. For a unique souvenir from Spain, you can choose from a selection of aceituneros, small olive dishes, or sangria pitchers. Other popular items include vases, tea sets, and lamps to decorate any room of the house.
Barcelona and Gaudí
Gaudí’s modernist style of art and architecture can be found all over the city of Barcelona in places like the Sagrada Família and Parc Güell, to name some of the most iconic. Parc Güell is highly recognized for its vibrant colors, tiled mosaics, and dream-like atmosphere. To get a sampling of this style in your own home you can pick up a piece from ART Escudellers‘ Gaudí-inspired collection. Modernist pieces like brightly-colored mosaics, tiles, and plates echo the style of Parc Güell in miniature form. For those looking to express their love of Barcelona, you can pick up mugs and plates with paintings of famous monuments or tiles with portraits of the port. No matter what you choose, your memories of your trip to Barcelona will last a lifetime.
Jewelry and Paintings
Apart from ceramics and glassware ART Escudellers sells other pieces such as murals, paintings, and hand-crafted jewelry. The jewelry is made by Spanish artisans, with a wide range of prices to fit any budget. The visual art collection contains paintings and murals from mostly Spanish artists but also some international ones. Some depict Spanish themes and artistic styles but others are more for more general tastes and sure to please the eye of any art collector.
