In this edition of FOCUS ON CRAFT, we venture to Portugal to explore the captivating work of Pó de Barro, a brand synonymous with sustainable and handcrafted homeware. Their story is one of deep respect for tradition, a love for the earth, and a commitment to creating beautiful objects that elevate everyday living.


Rooted in the Land

Pó de Barro translates to "clay dust" in Portuguese, a fitting name that embodies their deep connection to the earth. Each piece is crafted from locally sourced, high-quality clay, ensuring a sustainable and eco-friendly approach. Their artisans, skilled in techniques passed down through generations, transform this simple material into stunning tableware, decorative objects, and more. The result? A collection that radiates warmth and authenticity, carrying within it the essence of the Portuguese landscape.

The magic of Pó de Barro lies in the human touch. Every piece is meticulously hand-formed on a potter's wheel, ensuring its unique character. Skilled artisans then meticulously glaze and fire each item, resulting in a beautiful interplay of textures and colors. This dedication to craftsmanship is evident in the subtle variations that define each piece, making them true one-of-a-kind treasures.

Pó de Barro's design aesthetic draws inspiration from Portugal's rich artistic heritage. Traditional motifs and patterns find a modern expression, resulting in a timeless elegance that complements any home décor. Their color palette reflects the vibrant hues of the Portuguese landscape, with earthy tones and pops of color creating a sense of warmth and character.

Pó de Barro's handcrafted homeware is more than just beautiful objects; they are portals to the rich cultural tapestry of Portugal. Each piece embodies the warmth, artistry, and respect for tradition that define this vibrant country. At Soroka London, we are proud to showcase the exceptional work of Pó de Barro.
