“Cada homem é sempre alguém
Trazido á vida por bem
E que torna o mundo maior
É uma presença actuante
A mostrar a cada instante
Sua Qualidade e Valor

Junto á roda sentado
Pronto, desembaraçado
Aqui o barro trabalha
Na antiga arte de oleiro
Um artista de nível cimeiro
O Jovem Norberto Batalha

Mói a roda com ligeireza
Nas mãos tem a certeza
O que pensa não é em vão
Inventa novos modelos
De formato raro e belos
Um teste de prefeição

Realiza e vive optimista
Seu grande sonho de artista
Sente-se em caminho certo
Hoje vai para toda a parte
A obra da sua arte
Parabéns amigo Norberto.”

At 8 he starts to attend the nearest potteries learning bit by bit the art of these ancient artists. At the age of 14 he quits farming definitively boarding into the world of pottery. Due to the fact of such an early start of the learning process, he is, nowadays, a master of knowledge and experience in the art of pottery. Norberto Domingos Batalha is considered the real pottery master.
