Museo Eloy Teno
CAMPO DE CRIPTANA
The Eloy Teno Museum has three rooms, Añil, Almagre and Albero. These are respectively occupied by the work of the trio of artists from Criptana: Antonio Manjavacas, wire artist, Severiano Lucas, who works with his wooden and iron models of mills, old trades, carts, etc., and Eloy Teno, iron sculptor.
In 1996, Manjavacas opened the first permanent exhibition of this kind in Spain, the Museo del Alambre (Wire Museum), in Polop, in the province of Alicante. The work of the self-taught Lucas experienced a significant acceleration after his retirement. From that moment on, his concerns continue to revolve, now full time, around immediate life, around what slips through our fingers every day without us even realising it. Teno is an acclaimed sculptor who received the Regional Crafts Prize in 2010. His ideas on iron are also highly appreciated in France and Latin America.
