Each Valtierra object is uniquely handmade, using both hand-throw techniques by master ceramic craftsmen Don Jesus Torres and slipcast techniques. The shape is rooted in owner Perla Valtierra’s deep research of Mexico’s native Zacatecas, Guanajuato and Oaxaca communities, among others. In collaboration with MEK, Perla designed a series of ceramics with the hope that its new owners really connect to their new items; to restore meaning to everyday objects — uplifting utensils to applied arts. Each item of this collaboration is engraved “Valtierra X MEK” at the bottom.

Perla Valtierra is an eternal explorer of objects, crafts and cultures — freely experimenting with clays and glazes like an alchemist. After practicing traditional pottery among various native communities of her home country Mexico, she relocated to Paris, Kyoto and Brussels to explore foreign techniques. She currently resides in Mexico City, where she creates handcrafted made-to-order pottery with a small team of crafts(wo)men.

These objects are handmade in Perla’s studio in New Mexico, using local clays and in-house glazes. Each piece is fired at 1200ºC, creating resistant, long-lasting objects that are each unique in size, colour and details.
9 x 19 cm, with a capacity of 1 liter.

Please hand-wash with water and soap. Not dishwasher safe.
