Shelley Osterloh ReportingFor more than 50 years a family of Spanish porcelain designers has created a unique collection of figurines. Now Lladro has created a special group of collectibles that will help in the fight against breast cancer.
The artist will unveil the special pink collection of Lladro at Modern Display. Many people are very familiar with the Lladro porcelain figurines. There have been more than 3,000 figurines introduced over the past 50 years. Juan Vicente Lladro is one of the artists.
Juan Vicente Lladro: "We have selected four items out of our catalog to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. So we're setting aside ten percent for the Foundation."
The company says it's important to them to support this cause because their company revolves around human values.
Juan Vicente Lladro will also be available for a signing tonight at Modern Display, at 424 S. 700 E., from 6:00-8:00 pm.
