Varina is an original teapot in fine glazed stoneware, entirely handmade and of very high quality.
More than a simple teapot, this object is a tribute to one of the most emblematic traditional figures of Lisbon and Portugal: Varina. It comes with an original story "The 5 Varinas and the tea" translated into Portuguese, English and French. It is a whole universe that is presented here calling on literary talent, Portuguese history and traditional crafts.
This original piece is part of the "Varinas de Lisboa" exhibition at the Pimenta Palace Museum in Lisbon.

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.
