Beautiful place

This is a beautiful spot in Recife. Not only for the art, but the whole environment is special there. Great experience.

Creativity beyond limits will put you in magic experience. Clay turned into pieces of art. Enjoy for some 2-3 hrs both indoor and outdoor exhibits. Well maintained gardens. Warning: floors could be slippery after rain, watch out and walk slowly.

Magic place, it seems you´re entering in a sort of dream! I believe this is a unique, unbeatable art collection in the world. Francisco Brennand is a multi-talented artist. I have been visiting this magic place since the 70s...

Francisco Brennand is one of Brazil´s most memorable artists with talents in painting, sculpture and ceramics. His vast collections occupy an immense area in the midst of the ancient Atlantic forest of the Northeast of Brazil which he has taken care to preserve on his land. One cannot believe that only one man was able to produce such wonderful works.... More

Plenty to see on a visit here. A bit of a "phallic" flavour, which is tastefully done! But not obvious, so it is possible to bring children! The site is beautifully landscaped, with many vibrant colours on display among the ceramics and pictures and the buildings themselves.

Lovely exhibition of a great sculpture master. Every single chef d'oeuvre is represented there. His name is Francisco Brennand, 88 years old and living and still working there! Of course, several other artists work on that studio, following their master's steps. His art is sexual inspired and exotic sculptures and paintings are everywhere. Should not miss it if you want...

The art of the artist is interesting , different. You can take very beautiful pictures there. It's a remarkable place. It's possible to buy... More

Amazingly located in one of the last preservated woods in the Recife area, property of one of the most powerful land owning family in the state of Pernambuco, this ceramic factory is the work-in-progress lifetime project of an exceptional artist. You will have probably seen his art around town, at the port, at the airport, without realising it all came... More

The place is full of different types of ceramic works from the artist F. Brennand, the place is little mystical and you can spend hours looking at the beautiful pieces.
