Excerpt: Porches Pottery is a producer of hand-painted pottery in the town of Porches, in the Algarve region of Portugal. The pottery was founded in 1968 by artists Patrick Swift and Lima de Freitas, in order to revive a traditional Algarve pottery industry that was rapidly dying out in favour of more modern techniques. Swift and de Freitas chose Porches for its history as a pottery centre, dating back for many centuries, and for its clay pits. The origins of Porches Pottery date back to the early 1960s, when Irish artist Patrick Swift first came to the Algarve and encountered a region where handmade artecrafts were still abundantly produced and used, a system of commerce and production based around craft activities; a way of life, in fact, that had changed little since the Middle Ages. However, despite its remoteness, the region had begun its inevitable march towards 'modernity¿, leaving behind a once thriving pottery industry. As mass-produced plastic and metal wares flooded the market, the potters found it increasingly difficult to compete and were reduced to making nothing but simple flower pots. In his book Algarve: A Portrait And A Guide(Images), published in 1965, Swift had noted this decline, saying of the dishes he would insist on using: All the basic dishes were of the local Lagoa pottery- easily breakable and poorly glazed. But aesthetically pleasing and so cheap that breakages were no tragedy. Replacements after all helped to encourage an industry threatened with extinction. Even now some of the nicer old kitchen objects can no longer be obtained at the pottery. 'People don't buy them anymore,' say the potters, 'so we've stopped making them.' An indication of this decline is that the pottery in Lagoa that Swift mentions closed shortly after his book was published - Lagoa does not having a working pottery to this day.
