Desafinado Canister


Sporting bright tropical colors, this ceramic can is branded with the title of the famous Brazilian bossa nova song “Desafinado” which usually translates to “off key or out of tune.” It celebrates by quoting the song on the back: “Love Should Swing.” It is completely hand-formed and individually decorated with plenty of touches to fool the eyes. From the sprung loop handle, to its ridged centerline to its jaunty stance, everything dances with abandon. Please click on the photos to enjoy.

This happy ceramic can takes the invented brand “Desafinado” and dances around with it. From “Off-Key Enterprises” with the tag line “Love Should Swing” it suggests something a bit friendly and loopy.  It is entirely hand-formed and painted with fired-on ceramic colors, evoking tropical fun times. The lid is removable and the interior food-safe, so go ahead and fill it with something wonderfully fun and blame it on the bossa nova.
