An ongoing collection of locally sourced craft-manufactured dishware and cast iron cookware that honors traditional Meso-American typologies and the art of cooking.
Project: The Good Space Project: Artefactos
Date: Spring 2019
Studio: Product Design 8
This project started with the curiosity for natural materials used for; smashing, prepping, serving, and eating quality food. I researched different manufacturing techniques, food recipes, material design, and global-cultures. I found the stories, craft, and hardworking people after hours in the Los Angeles food scene inspiring. This project also evolved into a kitchenware typology that nods at ancient artifacts and the monolithic beauty of Pre-columbian architecture as archetypes.
Wood, stone, and metal were amongst the first to be considered for their imperfect and natural qualities.
