Meet the
Cobalto team

Mariana Jerónimo

Mariana Jerónimo (1998) was born in Braga, has a degree in Visual Arts and a master's degree in Illustration and Animation.
After being away from her hometown for a few years, she chose to create the Cobalto Studio, with the artist Miguel Fernandes in Braga.


Within the warm walls of her project, she feels comfortable creating art through ceramic sculptures. Her main references come from organic elements, from nature and her travels, capturing shapes, colors and textures, rescued from her memories.

Miguel Fernandes

Miguel Fernandes (1997) was born in Castelo Branco, has a degree in Visual Arts and a master´s degree in Illustration and Animation. He currently resides in Braga, the city he chose for the foundation of the Cobalto Studio, with the artist Mariana Jerónimo.


His sculptural work focuses on the interpretation and deconstruction of the human anatomy rules, mainly designing faces in ceramics. He is inspired by the artists Auguste Rodin and Miguel Ângelo, who provide him creativity to create his own world of imagination and the characters who live there.
