##The story of ‘Artesanía Yuste’ goes back to the 1960s when Enrique Yuste (senior) was a builder working in derribos, destroying old buildings for new ones. Enrique collected ceramics and quality wood from the ruins. At his home, he became self-taught in the art of ceramics. His trade went public when he became a full-time artisan and started the shop in 1974.  You will find it in the historic centre of Valencia, in a quiet square near the Cathedral…

His son, Enrique Yuste (junior) has been running the shop for many years now and is also an artisan. You will find his workshop at the back of la tienda. This truly is a family tradition that has been handed down over the generations and it is such a contrast to the souvenir shops that litter the city. As Enrique emphasizes: “Everything here is artisanal, hand-painted and made in Valencia by using local materials.”

Valencia has a very rich history regarding ceramics. Here you will find the “blue” of Manises and the “green” of Paterna. The art of ceramics was developed from the region’s Moorish period, including the baked “Socarrat” technique that you will find at Yuste.  Indeed, you can buy  original pieces and reproductions from the 15th/ 16th/ 17th centuries.

Just off Plaza Reina, ‘Yuste’ maintains  a local tradition that deserves your support. Over the years, we have always found a warm welcome here.

True artisans.
