Mafalda Vilhena Girão has always been interested in harmonizing different practices and crafts.
An architect by common trade, she feels the need to find the juxtaposition between construction and handcrafted practices. She collaborates with established ateliers like Aires Mateus Arquitectos, Pau Marceneiros, Reverso Gallery and Inge atelier, developing a set of skills that guarantee an unusual versatility.
It’s in jewellery that she puts into practice her skills and experiences; the pieces are the result of a continuous dialogue between raw materials and their transformation. It is through this 1/1 exercise that she unleashes her freedom of expression - when everything is within reach. In the beginning of 2018, she established her own MVG atelier, where she intends to continue exploring scale relations between materials.
