Margaux Carel is a Paris-born, Lisbon-based artist who works in the medium of clay.
With a background that spans photography, fashion, and interior design, Margaux derives inspiration from the natural world’s raw, fleeting states of beauty. Her organic sensibility is informed by a childhood spent observing the majestic drama of the Alps—and the profound peace and perspective she found there. Margaux’s artistic process is a meditation, and this is reflected in her sculptures, which are at once strong and grounded, yet ephemeral and impossibly delicate.

Clotilde de Kersauson
A former textile designer, Clotilde has launched her first collection of ceramics in Lisbon.
She studied ceramics at Arco and then opened Studio Mirante with her dear friend Margaux Carel. In her first collection, Clotilde focuses on one object, a simple candlestick. Thrown on a potter’s wheel identical they are then pinched and worked to give them a unique, nearly human character.
Similar to one’s skin, the clay, unglazed, shows marks of the process and will continue to mark, revealing its history.
Margaux and Clotilde have invited the following guests:
Founded in a small village in Northern Portugal, Maison Angea is a family business specialized in botanical set design and flower styling for events, weddings and the arts.
Launched by Carla Leal, a French-Portuguese designer and entrepreneur, Maison Angea is a tribute to her family’s long-time passion for flowers and plants, carried through generations. Maison Angea produces plants and flowers of outstanding variety and quality, on the rich grounds of the family property located in beautiful Sao Bartolomeu do Mar. The cultivation, which is done with full respect for the environment, is fully sustainable and eco-friendly. Maison Angea’s mission is to celebrate Portugal's lush vegetation and give a second life to its beautiful plants by creating floral art that lasts a lifetime.
