Description

Ajonjolí by Ma. Fernanda Melgarejo, is a design line founded in Queretaro that seeks to combine Mexico’s material culture by combining processes and concepts of craftsmanship with design to create expressive and contemporary objects. This idea was born from the curiosity of the designer to see the result of the combination of an industrial design with art and handicrafts, to create objects that surpass the domestic use and turn them unique pieces. One of her main objectives is to achieve national and international recognition of Mexican artisans through the creation of contemporary objects that reflect and share part of the heritage of the Mexican culture. “Ajonjolí” is harvested for its seeds, which will eventually become a plant, hence the name. Everybody knows that when a seed is planted, it grows. Ajonjolí started in 2009 as a design project where ceramic was used following the nature and schedules of the project. From that moment, all designs focused on the use of handmade ceramics and clay. Trees grow from a small seed, and big projects arise from a small idea. This Small Tree Pot belongs to the Artisan collection. It is a decorative piece and it has a bright red finish. Made of low-temperature ceramic. Measurements: 9”X9”.
