This hand-made, four-piece, white ceramic set of ceramic espresso cups and saucers is the result of a collaborated effort of artists from the community of "Barreirinho", one of Brazil's most renowned archaeological sites: Serra da Capivara, in the state of Piauí. This unique community authentically reproduces prehistoric rock paintings. Not only will these pieces be highly functional in your home, but they also have the added social value that contributes to the development of the region and protects the cultural and ecological heritage of the National Park. These artisans are here to prove that you can have politically correct, sustainable and socially just products, all at the same time.

About the artist:

The Capivara Ceramics Project is located in the Serra da Capivara National Park, where a wealth of ancient rock formations and paintings have been preserved for millennia. In 2005, Capivara Ceramics Project won first place for the best sustainability project in Brazil, awarded by the Brazilian Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEBDES). As a major backbone to the community, the project supports the cultural and environmental conservation of the region, while serving as a crucial income source to those involved. All the pieces are produced under strict regulations issued by IBAMA, the Brazilian Institute of the Environment that periodically supervises the operation.

Today, the project has expanded its efforts and is sharing its successes through training other communities and groups. These groups have similar potential for working with artisanal ceramics. Capivara Ceramics Project exemplifies peer empowerment and sustainability.
