JOSE MARIN is represented by Second Petale Gallery for this auction.

Jose Marin is a titanium goldsmith, the best of the best in his field. The son of a goldsmith, he entered the school of the Valencian Jewellers' Guild when he was only 13 years old. In 2006, he opened his own workshop.

His list of awards and exhibitions world-wide is impressive. It includes the De Beers International Jewelery Awards and the permanent exhibition at the NATIONAL MUSEUM ZURICH.

About his work and inspirations, he says: "I draw inspiration from the Mediterranean to create colourful and sensual handcrafted jewellery where I combine titanium or timas with gold, silver, diamonds and precious stones. I am fascinated by colour, worked metal and nature as a basis for the creation of my pieces. Titanium Damascus or Timas is an innovative material. It is a beautiful fusion of old and new world decorative techniques that fascinates me and integrates my designs."
Permanent Exhibitions: NATIONAL MUSEUM ZURICH "Alice and Louis Koch Collection".
