Sets of Handblown Tumblers Acatl Red

£139.00

Each glass is made individually and requires the work of 6 people. The glasses can present some size variations and bubbles from the process of production, we love these details that give history, individuality and texture to the pieces.

 

We work in partnership with traditional workshops around the country, many of which have been running for generations, some of them for more than 160 years. Faced with the global environmental crisis, we have taken solace in the ways in which communities across Mexico have for generations created useful objects with natural materials they find around them, and which at the end of the item’s useful life can help it to degrade back into the earth. We are proud to be a part of that tradition and believe that an object made with love, thought and knowledge of technique can be reflected in objects that change our way of consumption. The shape of this collection of glasses is manifested from the union of two elements.

A cylindrical centre and a kind of wavy ring that forms an X shape that in turn refers to the way the ancient Mexicas tied their flowers or canes."
