I have known for some years two elephants who live in the back of the Fábrica de Faianças Bordallo Pinheiro. They live together with snails, frogs, chickens, ducks, bees, many birds and other animals. I keep a good memory of the day we talked for the first time, we became friends. When I was asked to design a piece for the 125th anniversary of Bordallo Pinheiro, I ask them for help. They wandered in the factory museum, chose bowls, pots, vases and began to push them. I enjoyed what they did. They are the authors of the things I've done for this anniversary... I merely watched.
