- 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 Ana Miranda. This Sardine was born from predominant topics in the news, such as the economic crisis and emigration. An analogy with airmail envelopes and messages that emigrants use to send to their families. The image on the back is from the transport network of Bordeaux.
