Bordallo Pinheiro Hand Painted Earthenware Amazonia Dish 43cm
This gorgeous, slim platter is part of the Amazonia collection and it is beautifully hand painted with wonderful detail.
The collection is the result of a collaboration between Bordallo Pinheiro and the Brazilian NGO Ecoarts Amazônia, a body concerned with the preservation of an environmental, cultural, social and scientific heritage crucial to mankind's future.
Each piece in the collection is inspired by the very rich local flora and was only possible thanks to sharing with those who live their daily lives in this vibrant mosaic of ecosystems, traditions, colours, sounds and smells that is the Amazon rain forest.
Part of the collection's proceeds will go the reforestation of the Amazon area of Mato Grosso, by planting indigenous fruit trees in cities, rural areas and indigenous villages of the region where Ecoarts Amazônia operates.
This is an award winning collection with a European Product Design Award - Gold Prize Winner and a German Design Award 2020.
Width 18.1cm x Length 43cm x Height 2.4cm. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
The Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro, was set up in 1884. Brothers Raphael and Feliciano Bordallo Pinheiro started the venture, and many of the pieces today are still made to Raphael’s designs. In only twenty-one years, Bordallo Pinheiro’s bold, artistic ceramics gained international recognition. Raphael took inspiration from the flora and fauna around his home town of Caldas, as well as drawing on ideas from the Renaissance and from the Art Nouveau & Naturalism movements.
