Pottery Brennand, Recife
Most of the best work of Brennand is exposed in the garden. Clearly obsessed by erotic shapes, there's a touch of Dali in some of the "crazy" compositions.
The Taj Mahal is the central volume, and the fountains and walls frame it very well.
An old factory of pottery was transformed by its owner's imagination in a personal museum.
The integration of the old buildings with the new forms and look was very well conceived, giving a constant sensation of tradition and modernity.
A large area of the factory is covered by all kind of shapes coming from Brennand's imagination. It's such a wide display, that you barely notice most of the pieces. And, a strange thing, they don't seem very interested about... selling. I only saw a small shop, with some banal pieces at medium price. Another missing point is a circuit to visit the working factory.
We may see the workers here and there, but a ban at the door tells us not to enter. Well, art is beautiful, but work is not unworthy.
