Carlos Manuel Gonçalves

The ceramics by Carlos Manuel Gonçalves brings us fantastic creatures and fun characters that simply make us smile.This is his world, light and fun, which reflects a lot of his personality. A very peculiar universe has accompanied him since childhood in Alentejo, where he grew up, in an era without internet, where imagination and creativity were his greatest weapons to entertain himself. The field people, the farm animals, and all the creatures that inhabited his imagination, today reflect the identity of his work.
It was by mere chance that he discovered that ceramic was the perfect material to bring all these characters to life. That discovery changed the course of his life.
