AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA

It happens sometimes to dig in water. There is a song, among many, in Capoeira Angola which is a poem and after this poem I made a lamp.

I shaped the stoneware, I opened holes, light is a like a sound, it shall move in lamps as sound moves in instruments.

I signed traces of creatures and movements, one movement, for example, called “meia lua” is scratched there.

I made a glaze composition using copper and cobalt oxides, the one elements you see the most on the inside. Outside, I used other combinations of those and pigments.

Tem areia
Tem areia
No fundo do mar
Tem areia

Tem areia, Tem areia
Tem areia
No fundo do mar
Tem areia

No fundo do mar tem pedra
Debaixo da pedra tem areia
Onde mora minha mãe
Minha mãe linda sereia

Tem areia, Tem areia
Tem areia
No fundo do mar
Tem areia
