Artist in her studio La Poterie Ceramics, Cascais, Lisbon


A peaceful surrounding where kitchenware inspires you like sunshine on a breakfast table, where humour is key and where wayward imaginings all have value; these are the things that make up my world.


Je cherche à me créer
une épreuve plus dure

Qu’imaginer ce monde
tel qu’il pourrait être


Je voudrais m’assurer du concret dans le temps 

Partir d’ici et de partout

pour tout ailleurs 

Ouvrir vraiment à l’homme

une porte plus grande 

Je suis créé je crée

c’est le seul equilibre 

C’est la seule justice

Paul Eluard
Poésie Ininterrompue II -
Ailleurs ici partout.



At La Poterie, our mission is to create a safe, communal space for all kinds of artists - beginners to professionals - to come together and express their creative sides. We believe in unlocking the creative within each and every one of us, and offer a wide range of classes for all students. Whether you’re a professional looking for new inspiration, a brand new student hoping to learn a thing or two about art, or if you’re simply interested in picking up a new hobby, La Poterie is here to welcome you.

We believe every artist needs an adequate space in which to create, and that space should inspire and support their creative process. We also understand how important it is for the place to have just the right environment, and that is what we strive to provide at the La Poterie Ceramics Studio. If you’re looking for a place that nurtures your artistic journey, look no further: we’re here and we can’t wait to see what you can create.
