Mantiqueira VasesDomingos Tótora
Brazilian designer Domingos Tótora is self-taught and specializes in handmade, sustainable design. He creates pieces of extreme beauty, referring to the colors and textures of nature, i.e. bark, stones and earth. Somewhere between art and design, his Mantiqueira collection of vases, created in 2019, is the result of a labor-intensive process. Tótora uses recycled cardboard, which he reduces to pulp, then moulds by hand, giving shape to structural pieces that are subsequently dried in the sun and finished.
