Ceramic object "Cherry Ginja"

Harvesting ceramic fruit from Brazil's northern region.

Brazilian designer Selma Calheira does not only present the natural form of apple, pear and cherry, these fruit also contain many 'vitamins'. Obviously, that is not meant in the chemical sense of the word; Calheira's fruit are made from ceramic after all. Figuratively speaking, however, these objects are created in Bahia in a social project initiated by the artist, supporting the disadvantaged rural population in Brazil's northern region and training talented craftsmen as professional ceramicists. Their ceramic objects, based on Calheira's designs, they have the opportunity to earn a basic living.

Her ceramic fruit "based on nature" can be placed on their own, as a group, in a bowl or as a sculpture. They are manufactured in a sophisticated manual process. The brown stems are made from wood, a very nice contrast with the ceramic body. Every piece is unique.

Ceramic object "Cherry Ginja": size 21 x 48 cm. Weight ca. 1.5 kg.
