History of this location:

Jorge Luiz Pessotti, originally from Sao Paulo, first discovered this location in 1986, falling in love with the waterfalls. He returned to Paraty and purchased the property in 1999 and built his house/pottery workshop. He lives in harmony with nature and derives inspiration from the breathtaking mountain setting.

Jorge’s pottery is truly remarkable. The few pictures on this page do not do justice to the beauty and energy captured in his work. You’d better visit to see what he cooking up! His work is also featured prominently in our logo.

Sustainable Features:

Jorge recycles paper products, hires local people, and produces his beautiful pottery pieces with local clays. His work can be seen throughout Paraty at various pousadas and art exhibits.

Claudia G. Green Apr 2012 "Not only is his work inspirational, the location of his studio/gallery is magestic. He uses local clay for his art which can also be spotted at various restaurants and hotels throughout Paraty. This is truly a local business using local resources to create sustainable art that is authentic."
