CORES DA TERRA The Visitor Sculpture Large 75cm Ceramic 31 Rubia
Cherry painted figure. Hand made of ceramic.
Cores da Terra stands for Colours of the Earth. The ceramics are all handmade by using natural pigments and every piece is unique. But the social aspect is also very important; the studio has become well-known for developing and educating local artisans and contributes to the economic and cultural development of one of the poorest areas of Brazil.
Selma Abdon Calheira was born in 1958 in Ibirataia, Brazil. Today she manages the Cores da Terra studio, providing jobs to people from humble origins who were patiently educated and professionalized as highly qualifed ceramists. The name of the studio was coined by Selma because of her lifelong interest in clay and the experimental use of natural pigments.
Colour: Red with brown stem.
