     Design experiments using ancient materials and their natural properties to add value to an everyday object.

Value meaning, look, feel, personality, etc. 

    Clay/Terracotta (unglazed), has the natural property of cooling water, that's why it was chosen as the perfect material for these bottles.

     The coffee mug (glazed), was designed as a reinterpretation or a redesing of a classic Mug used to drink Comala's coffee, a zone well known for it's good quality coffee.

 

      The "Café de olla" prepared with a raw form of sugar called "piloncillo", cinammon and star anise it's a very traditional way of making coffee in México.

 

    These designs try to celebrate and elevate those traditions and aim to give them a place in the modern environment.
