This new iteration of our classic Primavera design is light and effortless. It is a generously spaced decoration, with single flowers surrounded by a flurry of leaves, that allows a little more white space, which enables the form of the piece to stand out.

All our ceramics are hand made and hand painted by skilled artisans using ancient techniques here in the Algarve region of Southern Portugal.

Our red clay, earthenware pottery has been characteristic of the region ever since the Phoenicians, Romans, and Moors traded along the Algarvian coast. It has always been favoured for its hard-working, durable qualities. It has a satisfying weight and a robustness that is distinctive in the hand. In most instances, the shapes we use have been handed down, from potter to potter, for thousands of years and you will often find identical shapes in history museums across Europe.

The pottery is hand glazed and kiln fired to temperatures of over 1000º Centigrade (or around 2000º Fahrenheit), which makes it completely food safe, and brings out the lustrous finish.

We use the ancient Majolica technique to decorate our ceramics, which is an over glaze painting technique. This method demands free-flowing, confident brushwork, much like a fresco, and lends each piece with the distinct character of the artisan that has painted it. It means each and every piece is completely one-of-a-kind.

This is why you will find the signature of the artist and the mark of the Pottery on the base of each piece, though the trained eye can identify the artist from their brushwork alone.
