SECLA was  opened in Caldas da Rainha, one of the main places for pottery in Portugal, in 1947 - sadly now closed. At the beginning of the 1950s, SECLA opened a pottery studio where artists could experiment new shapes and techniques.

SECLA stands for "Sociedade de Exportação e Cerâmica, Lda." which means that most of the pieces were destinated to the foreign market, especialy the USA and the UK.
