THE ACCESSORIES CERAMIC MANUFACTORY
To expand our accessories range and to be able to use different manufacturing processes, the cooperation with Senhor Cunjha was born. His manufactory is also located in the Porto region - just like our first ceramic manufacturer.
We were allowed to build up a good relationship with the warm-hearted man. Cunjha's friendly approach to his team, his relaxed nature, and his professionalism appeal to us greatly. Having started his career as a pharmacist himself, he came to work with clay in the 1980s through his wife.
Her family had already been running the factory for generations, which would later become his property. Our candlesticks, FLORES vases, and flower pots are created both on the potter's wheel and by stamped clay technique in the family business.
HOW IS A FLOWER POT ACTUALLY CREATED?
Terracotta flower pots are made from clay. First, the clay is soaked in water to make it pliable. Then it is placed on a disc and shaped by hand. After the pot has the desired shape, it is dried and fired. The first firing is done at a low temperature to remove moisture from the clay. After the glaze is applied, the pot is fired at a higher temperature to make it hard and durable. Ready is the terracotta flower pot!
