ARTISAN ARMANDO MARTINS
Armando Martins first began learning the potter’s art at the age of nine, following in the family tradition. He works with clay that he extracts from his own clay pit in the area of Estoi. Every day, with amazing dexterity, he mould the pots used to capture octopuses. Teaching is in his blood, perhaps because he looks upon his profession as an art that deserves to be shared.
