Studio Swine has made a collection of aluminium objects from street materials in São Paulo. Using a mobile foundry to smelts aluminum cans using waste vegetable oil collected from local cafes as a fuel.
”Lateira” is an homage to this nearly extinct Portuguese rooted industry. Using the can as a blank canvas, the object grows in shape and dimension. The use of traditional Portuguese pottery is a way of promoting and preserving our internationally renowned handicrafts.
