Consuelo was handmade by our artisans using the Vitrofusion technique. Guided by the artist Margarita Llort, they used their vast experience with glass art to produce the "Artesanos de Luz" collection. Using artistic glass, wood, and metals, they recreated the designs that visual artist Fernando Llort left as a legacy with scenes inspired by the Salvadoran countryside, roots, people and God's creation.
Fernando Llort was one of the most important artists in the history of El Salvador. During his lifetime, he gained international recognition and participated in many art exhibitions around the world. Painter, sculptor, muralist and composer, his work was truly unique and he promoted art by founding the artists' cooperative called "La semilla de Dios."
