We are a portuguese authors project, related to the production of contemporary ceramic pieces, since 2002.
Ten years of art and skill.
From the idea to action and from this to the final product is a long and arduous journey for four hands.
We create and produce contemporary pieces with message.
Devoutly, seriously, exclusively, dangerously, carefully and – why not say it? – perfectly. Pieces that tell universal or personal stories, sad or happy ones, with horror by the easy effect, the “déjà vu” or the vain brightness.
Common denominator is almost always the ceramic and the pursuit of happy marriage between tradition and innovation.
At the beginning, we conceived a full collection of artisanal ceramical KNOBS, based in conical forms, exploring geometric and organic motifs:

Some years later, we decided to extend our work to items such as JEWELS and limited edition OBJECTS:
ABOUT CABINET KNOBS:
Contemporary conceived signed pieces of design, in slip white clay body.
Given its main funtion – cabinet knobs – the collection is based in conical forms, presenting either flat faces or low reliefs, exploring geometric and organic motifs.
The solid knob allows the thread being worked inside it. The extent of the pallete – strong colours with brilliant reflexes – fits the shapes, enhancing its faces.
Running the production, hard finishing is imperative for the obtaining of the best result.
ABOUT JEWELS and OBJECTS:
Handmade hight quality works, produced, signed and painted entirely by ourselves. Perfect workmanship is essential to achieve unique pieces, revealing our concern for detail, the search of original forms and the study and application of new hand-painting techniques.
