Charity auction of a sculpture in clay of known Portuguese ceramist Júlia Ramalho with the certificate number 36610 to support Adolescere - Associação de Apoio a Crianças e Adolescentes.
Júlia Ramalho is one of the most popular Portuguese artists and her work is easily identified by her honey-glazed pieces. Born in 1946 in Galegos, Barcelos, Júlia is the granddaughter of well-known ceramist Rosa Ramalho. She learned with her grandmother how to sculpt the clay figurine pieces before turning 10 years old. You can clearly see in her work her grandmothers’ artistic aesthetic notably in the Christs, sarrôncos or cabeçudos and even in other pieces of her own creation.
The value raised with this charity auction will support activities for the children and adolescents at risk helped by the association.
