Now that Maison et Objet 2019 is, sadly, over, it is time to remember the best of the event. As always, we tried to find talented master artisans behind the mesmerizing masterpieces showcased at the art and design fair – the Pullcast’s jewellery maker was one of them.
The exquisite brand Pullcast had Rui Pinto, master in jewellery making, exhibiting his marvelous craftsmanship skills live at the event. When asked about his journey to become the top crafsman at the luxury brand Pullcast, Rui explained he collaborated with several shops and brands throughout his life. Pullcast, however, allows him to let his creativity run free. “Pullcast is a place where the power of creation has no limit”, he says with joyful eyes.
The major challenge he delightedly faced was to create something that didn’t exist in the market. He didn’t give up until he achieved that new wonder and he still is innovating in his field today.
His inspiration comes from natural elements we can see just outside our windows, the wonders of everyday life which surround us without us even realizing it. Beauty, for him, can be found in all corners of the world.
The drive to capture natural beauty in his creations led to the development of Kesya Pull, one of the most wonderful art pieces in Pullcast’s Earth Collection. Rui confesses: “Kesya was the first piece that I created, and I used a piece of wood to make the mold that eventually produced the end product!”
After Kesya and the Earth Collection, this extraordinary master artisan developed other collections like Ocean and Cosmopolitan. The last one, as you can imagine thanks to its name, is inspired by a urban lifestyle. The first one, however, brings its inspiration from the depths of the sea.
Among the brilliant Ocean pieces is Toile Pull, Rui’s favorite. To mold this creation with his own hands, the master artisan extracted his inspiration from coral reefs and their mysterious atmosphere.
Every single piece that is brought to life by Rui’s hands has a piece of his soul, because of the dedication and passion he has for his work. Thanks to him, the ancient art of hand crafting luxury jewellery is still alive and thriving in contemporary design.
