HANDPAINTED STORIES

Portugal, the country of whimsical beaches, Porto wine, seafood, and also azulejos. Even people who aren’t familiar with the term, they visually recall the ceramic tiles painted in blue artistic patterns, repeated in many historical buildings or as rich accent elements such as house numbers. Profoundly linked to architectural use, it is usually applied as wall covering decoration, layering large surface areas on both the inside and outside of buildings. And we are proud of them.

GOLDEN EMBROIDERY

Filigree is the most delicate technique used to work precious metals, usually of gold and silver. It is an age-old and detailed jewelry expression in which skilled artisans painstakingly solder tiny beads and twisted threads to create striking artistic motifs, suggesting often an exquisite and intricate lace-like pattern.

“It takes thousands of attempts to get right and the threads can be as thin as a hair.
The way we bend the material will never be the same, we can bend the threads a little bit more or a little bit less, machines can’t do this. It seems simple but it requires a lot of labor and technique and I think this is what true art is”, reveals Mr. Rocha, one of the
last filigree experts in Portugal.

“When crafting a piece like this, the end result is always different, each piece is unique. It is hand-crafted work, a work of love”.
