Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Cozumel Mortar of marble with wood mallet, perfect to make sauces, crush salt, pepper and seeds.

Karim and Joana, founders of Ayres Estudio takes inspiration from the traditional mexican objects. Each piece was beautifully hand-carved from black marble by artisans in Tecali, Puebla.

Inspired by their historical, natural and primitive roots, they highlight the beauty of the materials, designing unique objects and furniture with a primary aesthetic. The Ayres shapes are basic and unique, remembering prehistoric utensils.

They work the designs in several states in México, setting fair terms of trade with artisans and that can allow them offer objects 100% handmade with high quality materials and the most beautiful hand craft work.

Care: washed with soap and water and dried immediately.

As a consequence of the natural finish without any chemical coating, it is normal for stains to appear on the marble with prolonged exposure to the sun and with certain foods, (such as lemon, grapes and other fruits, cheeses, oils, wine,)

Each piece is handmade so there could be a slight variation in size and color.
