Description

In 2013, the “San Lucas” containers project gave birth to Piedrafuego. Exploring our passion for cuisine and inspired by the traditional molcajete mortars, we designed these volcanic stone containers and added a lid in tropical zapotillo hardwood – from the Yucatán peninsula – to allow ground spices and salsas to preserve their aromas.

The containers are hand carved by master artisan Don Ignacio García, in central Jalisco, with whom we preserve a seven-year long friendship and professional alliance.

The set contains a wooden pestle and three XS “San Lucas” containers, each are 10 cm in diameter and 5 cm in height.

About the designer

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.
