José Carvalho

shale miniatures

Houses, cars, entire villages are born from the hands of this creative craftsman. He works each pebble with mastery, so that it finds its place in creation.

In his studio, he has reproductions of houses, mills and churches representative of the region’s villages, carved stone by stone, but as faithful as the originals.

The hardness of the stone contrasts with the beauty of the works. An art that shapes Caretos de Podence, as well as nativity scenes and even oxcarts, which are only part of our imagination, manage to sprout from his hands.

Undoubtedly, a complex and meticulous art that brings to life and reproduces the characteristics and traditions of a region.
