In a collaboration with Passa ao Futuro, we organized a week long creative residency in Viana do Alentejo where we invited 4 illustrators to work with a family of potters and painters, Feleciano Agostinho and Mira Agostinho. The resulting works from José Torres aka Cosmvs, Bruno Reis Santos aka Mantraste, Mariana a Miserável and Mariana Malhão are a contemporary interpretation of the motifs and techniques applied of this village in Alentejo. The project Tasco in Viana has rejuvenated Viana do Alentejo's pottery tradition, bringing new light to this deeply rooted culture. The products can be found at Tasco.pt.
