- Sardine design
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 David Mares. Wrapping the sardine in lace creates a strange beauty. This sardine is almost a metaphor for the natural beauty of Being, highlighted, or even overshadowed, by an artificial layer.
