Barro is a tableware collection that brings the warmth and beautiful simplicity of terracotta to the table. Meaning ‘red clay’ in Portuguese, Barro represents my appreciation of the traditions and uses associated with this ancient material. Crafted in Portugal from durable terracotta, the Barro Collection combines natural glazes and high-gloss colours that can be matched or mixed in innumerable personalised combinations.

Composed of 11 items in a mix of 6 colors, spaning from dining plates, serving dishes, salad bowls, mugs, a jug and a candle holder.

Barro is crafted in Portugal using handmade moulds – seen here, the mould being made for the Oval Dish Large.

Raw materials are extracted at the factory surroundings.
