Bordallo Art

Copies of the vast legacy of Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro and his son, Manuel Gustavo Bordallo Pinheiro, until 1920, currently produced by the hands of the Factory’s craftsmen, using centuries-old techniques.

Fish and Shellfish - Cockle

The cockle is a filtering bivalve mollusc that lives buried at a depth of about 5 centimetres in sand or mud, where it feeds by filtering the phytoplankton from the water. When threatened, it can quickly burrow deeper by the retraction of the foot that keeps it anchored, which manoeuvre sometimes sallows cockles to escape predators. Cockles are very common and up to 10,000 animals per square meter can be found. Because of its high tolerance to low salinity environments, it is also frequently found in estuaries.

Cat - Hissing Cat

Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro worshiped cats. He, in a comic strip in the newspaper "Antonio Maria", confesses to being "cat in a previous life". His cats were well known in his cartoons and in his ceramic pieces, maybe because cats are frequently scratching, an attitude very similar to his cartoons’ political satire.
