       A Spanish family of artisans descending from a long dynasty of armourers and damasceners dedicated to ceramic art since 1867, when the Zuloaga brothers German, Guillermo and Daniel, began their training in the Manufacture of Sevrès to afterwards reopen and direct the royal factory of “La Moncloa” in Madrid.
       In 1893 after lack of success and the death of his elder brothers, Daniel went to Segovia where he decided to settle down. He first worked in the factory of “La Segoviana” owned by the Vargas family and from 1908 started with his own workshop in the church of San Juan de los Caballeros, from there on, he had the highly appreciated help of his son and daughters: Juan, Esperanza and Teodora Zuloaga Estringana. It is at the end of his life when due to his art and joyful and sincere personality he became famous and known worldwide.
       He attracted the most important Spanish artists, writers and intellectuals of the first quarter of the 20th century leading them to discover Segovia; his nephew and innermost friend Ignacio Zuloaga Zabaleta who initiated his brilliant artistic career owing to his close relation with his uncle Daniel, his family and this beautiful and inspiring city headed them. His paintings, that made him world famous, were mainly based on landscapes of Segovia, its people and their traditions, his family and uncle and especially his muse Candida Zuloaga Estringana.
