Description

What’s fascinating about primitive things is how elementary they are–seemingly obvious solutions developed over thousands of years. Bottle is a small vessel made from hand-forged copper, using an ancestral technique. It is available in a variety of finishes, and each reveals different aspects of what copper has to offer. It is a simple, discreet piece, designed to be a part of any space or occasion.

Quality
Each piece is individually forged by hand, meaning that minor variations in design, color or shape are not considered defects.

Social Responsibility
The fabrication of these pieces consists of a chain of artisanal processes that provide fairly-compensated job opportunities to several families. The acquisition of handmade pieces favors the preservation of traditions that are essential to maintaining strong cultural identities.

Care
Remove dust regularly with a dry cloth. If necessary, clean with mild liquid soap and water, using a soft sponge.
Vases and trays may be filled with water, but oxidation or mineralization stains may occur after prolonged contact. We recommend changing the water frequently and rinsing well before refilling.
The finishes highlight the different states of copper. In order to keep the pieces in good condition, we recommend not using chemical or abrasive products on them. Heat exposure may permanently damage the finish on the pieces.

Agustín Elizalde Urzúa
Estudio Pomelo is a Mexican architecture and design firm that develops everyday objects in collaboration with artisans, employing traditional techniques in order to offer contemporary pieces and help ensure the continuity of artisanal practices. By working with artisan families, we seek to make objects that are relevant to our time and functionally simple—without conceptual, formal or technological frills—so that these objects can be used naturally in urban environments—bringing a touch of warmth to these environments while standing the test of time. We experiment with the possibilities of traditional techniques in order to bring ancestral language to the present. We seek originality in connecting origins to contemporary objects, and we hope that our collaboration will keep traditional techniques alive (and fresh). In all of this, we aim to preserve local identity.
