Mario Brandao Ceramic cup black "Favella Collection"
Mario Brandao Ceramist, sculptor and decorative painter.
Brandão started his career as a ceramist in 1985, in São Paulo, Brazil, where he worked for over ten years. He moved to NYC in the early 90’s where he started a long career as a decorative painter and also restoring furniture and objects. He was responsible for numerous frescoes in private residencies in NYC and in other states as well. In 2008 he moved to Berlin. He was swooned by the high level of inventive energy he found in the German capital, and went back to his original passion, ceramics.
Mario Brandão Design Studio is a creative place by definition. Where he mixes the different practices he has been developing throughout the years. In addition to his ceramic project he also restores second hand furniture an hand painted objects.
The studio is also a showcase of decorative objects, sculptures, glass, and Mid Century lamps. Most of the objects shown have been picked in flea markets and antique markets around the world.
One of his latest interests is a collection of colorful and textured West Germany Ceramic vases produced between the 50’s and the 70’s.
Brandão is also a consultant in interior design and decoration. He also produces customized ceramic pieces as well as furniture.
