"Medusa e o Manjerico" is a completely handmade piece, composed of a clay pot and a glazed earthenware bell reproducing the Portuguese basil "Manjerico". It is traditionally decorated with a flower made of coloured paper and accompanied by a popular quote from the poet Fernando Pessoa. A bag of Portuguese basil seeds is also provided with the pot.

This piece comes with an original tale "La Medusa e o Manjerico" , which tells the story of a hero named Perseu who fell in love with Medusa, the legendary woman with snake hair whose eyes turn everything into stone. This tale is translated into Portuguese, French and English.
 
Why I love it 
  • This reproduction of the Portuguese basil that is traditionally offered to ladies, as a symbol of love, during the feasts of Saint Anthony is typically Portuguese.
  • More than an object, it is a whole universe that is presented here, drawing on literary talent, the history of Portugal and traditional craftsmanship.

Rute Rosa & Sérgio Vieira
The History Laboratory (Laboratorio d'Estorias) is an experimental design space that draws inspiration from Portuguese stories and popular culture to reinvent traditional objects by preserving an endangered manual ceramic manufacturing technique specific to the Caldas da Rainha region.
The History Laboratory (Laboratorio d'Estorias) is a joint creation of Rute Rosa and Sérgio Vieira, both from the ESAD of Caldas da Rainha (Upper School of Arts & Design). This experience was born from the desire to tell stories through objects. These two artists combine Rute Rosa's passion for ceramics with Sérgio Vieira's innate talent for developing author projects based on experimentation and innovation.
