my name is Joana Pedroso and I'm the designer and maker behind Trincar Uvas. 

originally from Portugal, I spent most of my adulthood in the Netherlands. now I've returned to Portugal to find a little abandoned farm close to the sea and build a dream. 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 its 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!
