Description

Tzom 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 manually sculpted in four varieties of cantera stone at the Íñiguez family workshop in Yahualica de González Gallo, a town in the state of Jalisco devoted to the carving of this material. Cantera stone is a variety of volcanic tuff spread across Mexico, and was widely used in local architecture during the colonial and post-independence periods.

Available in black, white, yellow, and pink.

About the designer


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.
