Four Portuguese illustrators under the artistic direction of Vicara have been invited to work in Viana do Alentejo with the Feliciano Agostinho family of potters. The characteristic local traditional motifs are the starting point for this immersive week long residency into this heart of the Alentejo culture.
With this shooting we had the opportunity to create new partnerships, strengthening our relationships between local brands. For today’s menu we have: Pitéu Plates by @halfstudio, Cachopo Cups from @marianafilipe_@malgaceramicdesign, and the @pastelbordallo pastries and the carob napkins with red berries jam brought by Forno do Beco to whom we thank for the collaboration :)!
While the other tascos are preparing for the long-awaited reopening, we had the help of Adega do Albertino for our shooting made by Anita Gonçalves, which we will share with you in the upcoming posts. Until then, let’s set the table for all of you.

To celebrate our collaboration with the most beautiful shop in Lisbon, A Vida Portuguesa in Intendente, we are presenting for the first time the Illustrated Plates. Join us in this event and get to know Tasco a little bit better!
During the Covid-19 confinement we collaborated with Monica Santos Studio and challenged the creative community to submit illustration proposals on our Instagram. We chose 4 illustrations for our collection, from more than 300 designs.
Nearby the city of Leiria, you find an old restaurant / barbershop called “O Pião”, the spinning top. We love traditional portuguese food and we look for the best Tascos all the time. This was the setting for the first Tasco Collection photoshoot, by our friend Tiago Gomes.
We started this new brand knowing we wanted to work with someone very experienced and close by. Turns out, not only is João Coelho an excellent potter but he is also an excellent painter, making beautiful and intrincate motifs look easy.
