By combining contemporary sensibilities with traditional values, and applying ancient techniques to innovative technologies, Bordallo Pinheiro has remained at the forefront of Portuguese pottery for over 130 years.
Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro was a multi-talented giant of nineteenth-century Portuguese culture, and remains one of the nation’s most celebrated and influential artists to this day. His work ranged from humorous drawings and political caricatures to vibrant and innovative ceramics, all characterized by his unique and skillful balance of gorgeous realism and whimsical fantasy. His pieces reflect a political, social, cultural and ideological terrain of his period, whilst also being timeless.
Bordallo Pinheiro began producing ceramics in 1884 at the Fábrica de Faianças in Caldas, creating technically and artistically innovative pieces. Always keen to explore his creative potential, his work included panels, pots, centerpieces, vase busts, fountain basins and gigantic animals, among many other things. His dazzling variety of superbly produced products earned him a global reputation, and awards at international exhibitions in Antwerp, Madrid, Paris and St. Louis. Despite this celebrity and the prodigious quantity of pieces produced, the quality of Bordallo Pinheiro’s work has never been compromised.
Today – over 130 years after first opening – the factory continues to produce Bordallo Pinheiro pieces to his exacting standards, maintaining the great man’s legacy. In the spirit of Bordallo Pinheiro, who was always ahead of the curve, modern technologies have been incorporated into traditional practices to keep the brand at the cutting edge of style, technique and taste.
