Mayapán Collection is composed by various pieces that mix the contemporary forms with a handmade technique. Karim and Joana, founders of Ayres Estudio takes inspiration from the traditional mexican objects made in lava rock. Each piece was beautifully hand-carved from lava rock by artisans in El Seco, 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: Being a porous and natural material without any coating, it will darken when in contact with oils. Before its first use, if it is going to be in contact with food, you should wash it with a brush, water, soap and carve raw corn with the pestle and it will be ready. The Vase includes a glass intern container.
Each piece is handmade so there could be a slight variation in size and color.
