Barro Negro short film

Do you remember what you were doing one year ago today?

A few members of the MADE IN SITU family & friends were gathering in Molelos, experiencing a « Soenga* » firing for Barro Negro pieces.

With the support of ceramists Xana and Carlos, we had the chance to live this beautiful moment during the night of full moon.


Portugal was in a post lockdown phase, and we felt privilege to be there. It’s been a year now and these were the very first steps of the MADE IN SITU project, initiated by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance.


From this mystical experience, a 13 minutes movie was made then aired during the exhibition of the collection in Lisbon.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary, we have the pleasure to release the BARRO NEGRO movie online today.



Soenga* is an ancient firing technique to cook ceramic.
