About The Designer
Mestiz is a project founded in 1025 by Daniel Valero, a Mexican architect and designer, with the desire to create stimulating pieces with a strong regional identity. Born as a merge of industrial design and craftmanship techniques, Mestiz aims to develop contemporary lifestyle pieces with a strong theoretical background that celebrate local talent. Mestiz arises from the teamwork of architect and designer Daniel Valero and master craftsmen from different regions in Mexico. The core principle of the project is symbiotic collaboration between designer and craftsman. Daniel was awarded the National Furniture Award in 2014 and won the National Scholarship for Apply Arts in 2016 at the École supérieure des Arts décoratifs in Paris where is studied Textile Design.
About The Technique
Wheel-turning pottery and fire-glazing were introduced during Colonial times. The vase is hand-thrown on a potter wheel and transfer to the kiln for high-temperature firing. The glazed is then applied and the vase returns to the kiln to be fired at low-temperatures.
