Twice a year I open the doors of my studio in Campo de Ourique, Lisbon, to present thematic pop-ups. I like to begin with a subject and, piece by piece, collect a set of objects. I start the research in books and then move on to the field, talking to artists and craftsmen, and ordering the pieces. Some are traditional and others are new pieces developed in collaboration with those artists and craftsmen. I really enjoy the dialogues that are then established between the various objects.
