We don’t appreciate what we have until loose it, this collection tries to reflect this idea by creating objects that reflect simplicity in form and function, in a complex material. By going back to our productive origins is that MON Collection is born. It is a set made up of tree pieces: a pitcher and two glasses of different sizes, representing the orographic diversity that exists in the Sumidero Canyon in Chiapas, Mexico. This canyon is unique by its natural richness, covered by different colors and textures, and accompanied by the water body that goes all the way through the canyon.
Every piece has an interior cone, mimicking that even though we don’t see the tectonic plates that created all this bodies, they are in constant movement: as the liquid poured in the objects move from one to another.
Material experimentation was a key element in the design process. During the development of the project, four types of ceramics were combined to create new tones and textures: amphora, red clay, terracotta and refractory clay. As a result, the textures and tones created resembled the diversity of mountains that exist, and their tonalities. The collection is composed of one pitcher and to glasses of different sizes that can be used depending on the user’s needs.
