Description

Pantli planters are inspired by tzompantli walls, surfaces covered with skulls -either real or carved in stone- that provided protection to sacred spaces across Mesoamérica.

The pieces are handmade in San Juan Evangelista, Jalisco, a town that traditionally works burnished clay, by the Basulto family. After two years of working with local clay, we’ve experimented with ceramics in order to produce thinner, more resistant pieces. The planters are available in three sizes in natural earthy colours that may vary slightly from lot to lot due to the artisanal nature of the process.

About the designer


Piedrafuego

The studio was born in 2013 as Álvareztostado, experimenting with materials and artisanal mexican craft techniques. In 2016 the studio transformed itself into Piedrafuego, honoring the transformation of materials -the meeting of human hands and earthly resources- the subsequent dialogue between materials and those who make our objects. The studio also develops architectural projects, artisanal manufacturing and interior design.

Curated by

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making. The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
