Paula Rodrigues
Atelier Cerâmica Bairro Alto presents the exhibition TurnAround by Paula Madeira Rodrigues.

"Last May, as I was walking in a Lisbon street, I found a strange and beautiful flower, which later on I realize it was not a flower but a fruit called brachichiton, that was so perfect that I brought it home with me. It was not a love at first sight, although I went to find some more next day, in fact it became a love and hate relationship.

For several months I kept the flowers/fruits on my working-bench not knowing what to do.

The same happened with the old Bakelite and celluloid poker and game chips I had been buying at the flea market. The work I present at this exhibition is the result of those findings, mix with some other materials that I’ve been collecting."
