The granddaughter of architect Rafael Masó continues to seek pure beauty through organic and geometric shapes
Jewellery designer Nausica Masó is the granddaughter of Girona architect Rafael Masó (1880-1935), and her work is strongly influenced by the modernista movement of which Masó was a key member. In her creations, which she makes using either new precious metals or recycled ones brought by clients, you can easily see the duality of a style that is halfway between the organic and the search for rational balance.
Having said that, as well as various geometric pieces that have clear architectural inspiration, there are others that tend towards ethnic styles and still others directly inspired by the work of the famous architect. The stained glass featuring a fly and a hen, found in the birth house of Masó on C/Ballesteries (it can be visited if you book in advance), are constant reference points in her pendants and earrings. Nausica never knew her grandfather, but she profoundly admires his work, and feels they're united by their respective work: Masó also designed jewellery for his wife.
