About The Artwork

What lines are drawn by my eyes, on ochre lands? What scents can you hear from my fruity red lips, beyond cold? What tropic holds my hand, on reliefs of salty desert? I cast my eyes , through those who see beyond. I breathe to my inner depths and exhale the beauty of all races, from a world I never saw. I feel all the lands of the earth in every pore of my skin and on every line of my fingers. Every sound is raw and so I sit with my senses and aknowledge the coordinates to where the path leads. Hence, I go forth. I dance along with my goddess hands, to the rhythm of the wheel. And that’s how I tell these stories. The shades of the world are cooked in my skin. Stories from other sites and landscapes are stitched on my pores. And so my kiln becomes the hearth of a god. Copy by Cuca Carou

Maria Castel-Branco* had her professional kick-off as a multimedia and graphic designer. As a hobby she gave classes in crafts to children from Cova da Moura and decorate party cakes that turned out to be real sculptures, which already revealed an emergent need for creativity and plastic expression. She decided then to invest and deepen her knowledge on ceramics. It was in January 2014 that he stumbled on ceramics and took classes for a year and a half, here he began to challenge the potential of this art, without ever leaving. Potters such as Ricardo Lopes and Vasco Baltazar taught her the skills of the wheel. In her studio, Maria likes to make objects that perpetuate in time, regardless of trends. She likes to innovate and every piece is unique and away from standards. She loves all the imperfections that handmade work can not hide. Maria gets her inspiration on her daily life and surroundings.
