With the idea of presenting new pieces and collaborative processes in the exposition, we created a new work team: Amando Pedro, potter from San Bartolo Coyotepec; Rodrigo Lobato, design student and collaborator; and Diego Mier y Terán, member of IT. Our starting point to design wall tiles, was Amando’s previous experiments and work with flat forms using San Bartolo clay, which lends itself much better to spherical designs.

After much discussion about Mitla, Mondriaan and Porcelanite, we designed a system of tiles that workes as a free-form puzzle, with three basic forms from which each person can create his/her own design.

The tile mosaics are shown together with the beloved Bartolas pitchers and their older brother, the Bartolo flower pot, both produced by Silvia Garcia and designed in collaboration with Daniela Esponda and Kythzia Barrera. The tiles, pitcher and flower pot are for sale at 1050 grados.

We are pleased to be in this exhibition alongside such talented colleges as: Emiliano Godoy, Ariel Rojo, Le Porc shop and Jorge Diego Etienne, to mention a few. Our thanks and congratulations to MAM for creating an event as important and rare as this one.
