This traditional learning process continues today in Miravet, and the Segarra Pedrola Family keeps it alive, since 1978 in the workshop that Teresa Pedrola and Ferran Segarra created the Raval de los Canterers. A building that also includes a ceramic and pottery shop and store, a space dedicated to their work as antique dealers and, finally, the family museum-collection; all large.
In 1976, at the age of twenty-nine, Ferran settled in Miravet, where he spent seasons from a young age, and began in the pottery trade in his father-in-law’s workshop, until – a few years later – he created his own pottery, where he worked and bake the clay. An activity that he has never stopped and for which he has received numerous awards. In 2010, for its merits, the Government of Catalonia awarded him the Master Craftsman Diploma.
Thus, some of the oldest typologies, those of storage and those destined for all kinds of preserves, were losing their old function, with the changes of uses and new technology, in the kitchen and the pantry. Ferran and Teresa were replacing or complementing them with new objects: bowls, coffee sets, plates, trays, tombatruites, dishes …
It is worth highlighting, in particular, the fact that an enormous number of museums, public and private, around the world, and also an even greater number of collections, both public and private, have in their collections work that has emerged from artisan hands of the current members of the Segarra – Pedrola family.
