The Sónia Collection, a unique collaboration between Claraval, Sónia Tavares and the Monastery of Alcobaça.
Sónia Tavares, the legendary Portuguese singer, was recorded in the Cistercian Monastery of Alcobaça, where Claraval manufactures fine Portuguese Ceramics.
Then, using artistry and ground-breaking computational technology, her voice was transformed into expressive 3D shapes, reflecting the full range of this emotionally- charged recording.
Finally, these digital 3D forms are translated into ceramic vessels, through the expertise and craftsmanship of Claraval in the field of traditional ceramic fabrication.
THE FOZ DO DOURO COLLECTION
The Douro River.
An extraordinary voyage steeped in history and geography.
From its birth in Spain to its final meeting with the sea in Porto, Portugal. And where river and sea collide, intertwining bodies of water create the sounds that we use to shape this unique collection.
