Ceramic Fruit by Parterre

Inspired by the vibrant colours and fleshy volumes of Brazilian flora Parterre’s collection of ceramic fruit is a distinct and original addition to any interior.

Designed by Selma Calheira, these ripe sculptures offer an organic elegance to any space. With a choice of apples or cherries in luscious greens and reds or more subdued black and white, the works come in sizes ranging from table-top friendly to room centrepiece.

The sculptures are made at the Cores de terra studio on the site of an abandoned cocoa plantation, where Calheira employs over 100 disadvantaged men and women. Calheira’s works have received wide acclaim and been exhibited in Paris, New york and Geneva.
