Large oriole (20cm) in glazed earthenware ennobled by feet in aged brass. This piece of very high quality is entirely handmade whether for its ceramic part or for its brass parts.
It is a magnificent object of decoration with an extraordinary presence due to its quality of manufacture and its large size (nearly 20cm)
Very present in Portugal, the oriole is a migratory bird that returns to Europe every year, and more particularly to the Iberian Peninsula, after spending the winter in Africa. It is difficult to observe but it is identified by its particularly melodious song using a range of very varied calls.
Why I love it
- A magnificent object of decoration.
- A very nice example of Portuguese craftsmanship.
- Material: Enamelled ceramic for the body, aged brass for the legs.
- Dimensions: 20x10x8cm
- Designers: Rute Rosa & Sérgio Vieira
Rute Rosa & Sérgio Vieira have created an experimental design space that draws on Portuguese stories and popular culture to reinvent traditional objects.
This experiment was born from the desire to tell stories through objects. These two artists combine Rute Rosa's passion for ceramics and Sérgio Vieira's innate talent for developing auteur projects based on experimentation and innovation.
