Rafael Picon was born in a small town in Andalucia, Spain. Rafael’s village was near Puerto De Palos, from where Columbus set sail. Two discoverers seeking to experience the new world - America. As a young boy, Rafael began working in metal at age eight. He would help his father, Antonio, and his uncle Agustin craft steel and copper designs for the town’s churches and local buildings. Today Rafael is a skilled metal smith and sculptor who works in a variety of mediums. He describes his work as “Fused Functional Art”, using glass, copper, wood, bronze, marble, gold, silver, ceramic, and just about anything to create unique designs.
