His great grandfather was Ramón Escasany, one of the founders of “Casa Escasany” which was one of the most important jewelers in Buenos Aires since the beginning of the 20 th century. Daniel keeps alive the tradition of his ancestors in faraway Catalonia of over a century ago. He works exclusively on silverware, and is one of the most renowned craftsmen in Argentina. He has been a silversmith for over forty years and gives technical classes in traditional silversmithing. In 1994 he was awarded a fellowship of the “Argentine National Arts Foundation” in “Folklore Expressions”. In 1995 he deservedly obtained a “Mention” in the First National Competition of Silversmiths, organized by the National Secretariat of Culture. His pieces reflect his experience in the craft as well as the family tradition which has maintained customs and habits of their land of origin.
