These distinctive drinking glasses can be used for everything from water to wine to coffee. Dishwasher safe, they are crafted entirely of natural Mexican clay, which has been glazed inside. This type of ceramic paste has been used in Mexico for nearly 3,000 years and is one of the best materials for pottery, hard and waterproof once cooked. These cups emanate the temperature of the liquid they hold. Set of four, each one measures 4.75 x 3.25 inches. Designed in Mexico City.

Inspired by primitive Mexican artifacts and tools, this young design duo reinterprets ancient objects and techniques for a current context. They favor simplicity of form, which allows emphasis to rest on the character and quality of their materials. From local woven palm, to the Mayan’s favorite tlapazol wood, to a centuries-old Mexican clay recipe, each element employed is rooted in history. Based in Mexico City, they work with artisans across the country.
