About The Designer
ONORA was founded by Maggie Galton, an art historian turned designer from New York and Maria Eladia Hagerman, a Mexican born designer living in Los Angeles.
They were brought together by their shared passion for Mexico’s cultural richness and their belief in applying innovation to Mexico’s rapidly fading artisanal sector with the final goal of preserving this important component of Mexico’s identity.
Together they have formed ONORA – a brand dedicated to the creation of high end, hand crafted textiles and home accessories in collaboration with Mexican artisans.
Each exquisite piece created by ONORA expresses the core principles at the base of the brand: the strong commitment to social impact, the profound respect for tradition and craftsmanship and the spirit of collaboration with artisans.
About The Technique
The clay is firstly kneaded extensively to get rid of air bubbles and impurities. The vase is modelled and the faces are etched, before transferring the vase in the kiln for low-temperature firing. The black version is glazed with lead-free paint and returned to the kiln to be fire at higher temperature.
