MIGUEL ÁNGEL “TAUCHIDO” was born on August 16, 1977 and grew up surrounded by what would later become his greatest passion: the world of porcelain. Son of artists, since his childhood he lived firsthand the love for art, which his parents transmitted to him. The artisan workshop of his parents was his place of play and experimentation: that magical place where fragile pieces became beautiful and shiny objects, and where the colors came to life through the magic of fire.
Tauchido’s restless personality and the fascination he felt for the work of his parents led him to want to know more, to find a way that the pieces he began to imagine in his mind could come to life through his hands. These experiences were the origin of that Tauchido chose the path of porcelain as his personal and professional expression.
In addition to the valuable lessons of his parents, Tauchido was formed and specialized in the creation of porcelain pieces, the most complex branch of the ceramics world, but the only getting what he imagined to come true. For Tauchido porcelain is his “white gold” because through it he can achieve personal development bringing to life his ideas and getting them to persist over the years like he imagined. Born more than a thousand years ago, this wonderful material, although very technically demanding, is able to last over time with the same elegance, distinction and delicacy as at the time of its creation.

Light and Porcelain Sculptures
Miguel Ángel endows his sculptures with an element that is essential for life: light. It represents the inner beauty that is found in each and every one of the things that surround us and that is as important or more than the external appearance. In this way, the light projections that are created around the pieces, reveal the message that each work keeps inside, beyond the sculptural design itself.
Unique pieces for unique people
Creator of the Zacelium: the art of uniting two worlds born to be together. Miguel Ángel is recognized for the creation and elaboration of exquisite pieces of jewelry, innovative at a technical level and with a powerful emotional and visual charge.
Currently, in his studio located in the Ribeira Sacra (Ourense – Galicia – Spain), Miguel Ángel is dedicated to the development of his work, making his ideas come true and transmitting his love for this ancient art. Primarily focused on creating bespoke projects for private collectors, his pieces embellish some of the world’s most exclusive places.
Tauchido’s passion for porcelain goes hand in hand with his search for the essence of beauty.
All we ever wondered where true beauty lies. Beauty can be treated as an abstract concept, but the fact is that there is always a trigger for that concept. In my opinion, beauty can not only be found in a face or an object that is pleasing to the eye, but can also be found in a sunset, in a gesture, in a kiss… in short, for me beauty lies in anything that causes us pleasant feelings.
Why we like to observe something beautiful? Because it makes us feel happiness, wellness, tranquility… It makes us feel better, it fills us with energy and, perhaps, it transmits part of its essence to us, making us feel beautiful. In my work I look for the essence of beauty to invade the senses so that people feel the energy, passion and love with which I create my pieces and, even for a short time, they feel good and be happy.
