This dish is part of Jorge Ramalho's attempts to give new impetus to the black pottery of Bisalhães. Here he combines an ancestral technique with simple, elegant and pure forms.
The originality of this pottery lies in its color which can vary from coal black to dark gray. This coloring is obtained naturally by firing in the open air, in a fire of wood, grass and damp earth.
More than an object, this dish is a part of the Portuguese heritage, considered today as world heritage to be safeguarded by UNESCO.
