Bases made in solid cabreúva wood, inspired by flower petal designs of the gardens painted by artisans of the Jequitinhonha Valley in their ceramic pieces and some houses’ facades.
The wood petals bases’ design seems to cross the champagne marble top, standing out on the table’s surface in an unexpected and beautiful marquetry.
Both solid wood and marble are natural materials, so the design of their veins and tones may vary. The image is merely illustrative.
Coincidence, fate or chance ... I can’t say, I only know that once again I saw myself in Minas Gerais, received with sincere joy, a tight embrace and eyes that smile. Getting to Jequitinhonha Valley is like diving into part of history, one that changed many lives and influenced so many others.
It’s a place with women of strength, determination and courage.
Women who put their souls in the clay and through it describe their lives and welcome their dreams, expressing all the delicacy and softness that they have inside them. Women who while molding the clay learned to respect time, without letting it pass, accept adversity, without accommodating, and today plant their gardens around the world, rewriting their stories.
It was there, in Jequitinhonha Valley, a place so full of past, of stories and traditions, that I filled my soul with the future and learned to live with time. The time where the old and the new blend, merge, transform into each other and become part of our memories.
