The sardine collection by Bordallo Pinheiro results from a collaboration between the earthenware factory of Caldas da Rainha, EGEAC (Lisbon’s Cultural and Animation municipal entity) and Lisbon’s City Council. The original Bordallo Pinheiro sardine, designed in the XIX century, due to its classic three-dimensional nature, became the ideal support for receiving the creative work from EGEAC. Designed by Craig Wheatley. Inspired by the Miami sunset on South Beach, Hawaiian shirt fabrics worn by gangsters and the art deco buildings on Colins Avenue in there clashing colours. Let’s not forget the surf and the surfboard designs. Pink flamingos, neon signs and the pink cadillac show Miami’s kitsch glamour that one loves so much.
