Furnarius Rufus

Furnarius Rufus is the scientific name of a bird popularly known as Ovenbird. This bird builds its nest using straw and dung with moist clay. The shape of the nest resembles an oven, hence the relationship between the bird and the oven. This project manufactured in the Bordallo Pinheiro ceramic factory uses a shape similar to the common icon of a house, which may be used as a bird house or not. The sculpture has ornaments that were drawn from a panel by the master Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro, containing drawings of birds in the region and cut fragments of blue tiles in relief. By adding the icon-shape of the house, the work brings together the nest, the house, the art of Bordallo, and the sculptureā€™s walls in the same colour tones of the original panel, however de-characterizing the original tile. The sculpture is suspended by cables and can be placed indoors or outdoors.
