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


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

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
