With Folkifunki we have created a number of unique pieces of art and with character. Thanks to the artistic slant so striking and so personal, each element in the collection can mingle with other elements or be presented on its own, displayed on any table or even hung on the wall as a decorative object. Following an increasingly common trend of combining distinct forms, playing with and enjoying the objects that surround us, reflecting who we are. The inspiration of the details that constitute each piece comes from my vision of what Portugal is. Iconic elements like the rooster, the fishes, the animals, as well as the countryside and the details of the tiles, all translated from my point of view: full of fantasy, where imagination has no limits. The shapes of the decorative pieces are folkloric, surreal, rural and with a dash of humour. Art, craftsmanship in producing the porcelain and applying decorations - watercolour, gold, lines and details – make this a very special set. I love the surprise of discovering the details while I eat. Finding characters, colours, constellations, where each element tells a story, creating endless narratives, depending on how the compositions are made. The interaction with each piece is unique, different and exciting.

Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. Over its long history, the Vista Alegre brand, which has always been intimately associated with Portuguese history and culture, has achieved unparalleled recognition and visibility.
Public recognition, perceived quality and the company’s investment in innovation and design have turned Vista Alegre into one of the very few Portuguese luxury brands to achieve iconic status on a worldwide level.
Having adopted rigorousness, sophistication and versatility as its core values, Vista Alegre has been able to harmoniously combine tradition and modernity, and remain attuned to cultural trends. Vista Alegre products reflect the most recent design trends and are manufactured according to the highest quality and functionality standards. In addition to using state-of-the-art production techniques, the porcelain factory also employs 17 hand painters, who are responsible for decorating the pieces produced.
