Designer Eneida Tavares has created Caruma, a collection of one-of-a-kind vases and containers that combine Angolan basket-weaving and ceramics.
The designer’s description
Using pine needles hand-picked in the forests of Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, Eneida Tavares combines traditional ceramic techniques with Angolan basket weaving to create this unique line.
Aptly named Caruma, the Portuguese term for pine needles, these vases and containers are inspired by Tavares’ Angolan roots, as well as the region in which she produces her designs.
Tavares seeks to demonstrate the possibility of a relationship between construction techniques and to create an intercultural dialogue with her work.
Starting from colors, textures, artisan techniques, gestures and habits of daily life as input to recreate a new landscape through objects and experiences.
