my name is joana pedroso and i am the designer and maker behind Trincar Uvas. 

i come from portugal, spent a big chunk of my adulthood in the netherlands and the last year i have been travelling around asia. i feel the happiest amongst nature, art and friends. 

trincar uvas is where i get to express myself. my aesthetics. what makes my senses tingle. what excites me and at the same time makes me feel like i'm home.

i am deeply inspired by tribal and folk arts & crafts. i love it’s raw and pure strength! in making and designing i use simple and ancient materials & techniques that have been with us for many centuries. most of my pieces are one of a kind or made in a run of very small editions. i like to keep my creativity flowing!
