Made in solid Cabreúva wood, this is a multifunctional piece with a timeless design that values Brazilian artisanal work. The traditional embroidery exudes the fabric and falls on the bronze glass to fill up the door of the Mobile Brocade, made in solid Cabreúva wood. The tones of the naturally dyed yarns recall the colors of paintings found in the churches and historic houses of Tiradentes (MG), probably made in the second half of the eighteenth century when the Rococo style, that came from Europe, brought with it lightness and light.
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.
Artisans, gold that flourish by hands
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.
Artisans are our wealth, our roots, our culture. Carvings, sculptures, embroidery and the like emerge from their hands, from their hearts love, respect and sensitivity. An honor for me that they allow me to enter their worlds and bring them into mine. Artisans Collection is a tribute to them, the people responsible for passing on much of our traditions.
