Ceramics from Portugal


There is a lovely little shop in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh called Dick’s.  They sell homeware, accessories and menswear with a focus on craft traditions from small manufacturers.  I was in the area on Sunday afternoon and decided to take a look with my daughter.  I hadn’t planned on buying anything but came out with a beautiful, vivid green plate (pictured below) made by Portuguese ceramics company Bordallo Pinheiro.  I have long admired their quirky, original work, particularly the more pared down, simpler pieces.    I  found some more unusual things on their website including these colourful earthenware sardines.   Each little fish measures 35mmH x 185mmL x 35mm W and would look great grouped together.
