Paco Lozano learned his trade from master to apprentice. He started from below, at 13 years old as the errand boy. He is a passionate man, although he doesn't like to be told that he is. We really don't know if he is better as a goldsmith or as a Latin rhythms' teacher because in both arts he is excellent. He is a versatile person, with big human qualities and friend to his friends.
He is one of the artists that gives life to Zenplicity's designs and who invites us to visit and enjoy his workshop, a place where tools from 1920 combine in excellent harmony with the most modern technology in the elaboration of beautiful craft pieces with an exceptional quality. The pieces are jealousy cared, giving as a result jewels that honor the work and tradition of the Valencian goldsmiths.
In the images, we can appreciate a work table (a plank) where a balance, a carbon stone and a drill make the highlight on it. We can also see a bench for stretching, a telephone and even a cash register that remind us of the legacy of craftsmen of the beginning and middle of the 20th century.
Most times, the goldsmiths made their own tools depending on their needs. They could even share the use of those tools, as Paco explains in his emotive video where he shares a fantastic anecdote about the bench for stretching.
