The end result of each research is a sculptural and functional
object that can be bought through galleries and design shops.
Each Soft Amphorae has two different coloured sides
and can be turned upside down. They hold water on either end.
The malleable handles reflect on the fluid quality of textiles and allows new ideas to be shaped and reshaped, creating various dynamic possibilities within a space.
The textile is developed through a specific handknitted structure, combining linen with leftover yarns from textile factories.
The inside structure is made of assembled found shapes of glass.
This project is an intuitive and experimental research rooted in a sustainable process. It reflects a way of living and creating specific to my Brazilian heritage,
which relies on collecting direct resources (whether it’s natural or post consumerism waste) and let that directly influence the objects you create.
This simple idea of reusing and reshaping without wasting additional earth resources
is at the core of my practice.
