Panal is a collection handmade in the pottery workshops of Dolores, Guanajuato. Dolores has one of the biggest traditions of pottery for centuries, well know examples are Mayolica vases and the decorative tile production. These traditions arrived with the Spanish who learned the used of glazes from the Arabs. This region is also known for the terracotta toned clay used to make beautiful plant pots and bricks which have a natural finish.
Our new collection is a tribute to the hand skills of the pottery craftsmen from Dolores.
Each piece has the particularity of marked rings on the surface; like fingerprints each one varies in number and size. The second particularity are the cuts on the periphery that are made by the designer. Through this method, Panal has the purpose of making each piece unique by the intervention of craftsman and designer directly on the piece. During the process, we experimented with color and glazes to create a contemporary aspect, including soft pink, ultramarine blue, or the cempásuchil yellow.
