Ceramic Nativity Scene Christmas 2021

The Diputació de València will exhibit this Christmas season in the courtyard of the Marqués de Scala Palace, the nativity scene of the ceramic artisan Antonio Cordero, donated last year to the Manises Town Council.

The artist from Jaén, who has developed his artistic career in the municipality of Manises, began the creation of this nativity scene in the middle of last year, which is made up of unique pieces conceived by hand, from the modelling to the decoration.

Antonio Cordero Herrera, born in 1953 in Pegalajar (Jaén), moved with his family to Valencia, where he began a new life marked by his artistic skills. In 1990, together with his wife, he set up a family business dedicated to ceramic craftsmanship, and subsequently worked until his retirement as a ceramic painter, until those close to him convinced him to bring his own collections to life and paint more elaborate pieces modelled in clay.
