Ornament wears off with time.

Through the process of manual lapidation,
the decorative details of an industrialy
produced chalice are erased.

Splendidor is the reinterpretation of an icone
of a traditional national glass manufacture,
the Copo de Bicos from Atlantis.

This project was done in collaboration
with Vista Alegre Atlantis for a exhibition
called "Collecting Collections And Concepts",
held during Guimarães European Culture Capital
and curated by Mariana Pestana.
