Making an allusion to the gold taken from Brazil by the Portuguese crown during the colonial period, the Artisans collection wants to show that the true Brazilian gold is still here, latent, waiting to be found.
There is an immense wealth stored in every artisan of this country, we just have to get rid of stereotypes and learn to see. The pieces of the collection are inspired by five artisans from Tiradentes (MG) and their different expertise. Through them I present my gaze on the work of each one. There are dressers, tables, mirrors and lamps with the soul of each artisan and mine too.
The traditional embroidery exudes the fabric and falls on the bronze glass that make up the Brocade Cabinet door. The tones of the yarns dyed naturally by Mattricaria resemble the colors of the paintings found in churches and historic houses in Tiradentes, MG. The embroidery on the glass is work of artisan D. Maria Conceição de Paula. Despite the fact of being born and raised in a small historic town, she allowed herself to experiment new surfaces, accepting the challenge of embroidering a bronze glass with 133 holes.
The embroidery was made in Tiradentes, MG- Brazil. The wood work came from Jaú, SP - Brazil. The bronze glass is from São Paulo, SP - Brazil.
