Balance Bowls - Ceramic
Balance collection is composed by pieces of different materials that challenge the laws of equilibrium. Making use of the same typology and different scales, the collection shows in each composition, the balance between the technique, the people and the ideas that inspire us. Each piece was produced using different traditional trades, craft techniques and Mexican industrial technologies that Joel Escalona has explored at different points in his career.Ceramic is one of the most capricious and charming materials at the same time. Usually it requires great patience in its conception and manufacture, especially for forms or compositions that border on the impossible. Trying new configurations requires experts with an adventurous spirit and their experienced hands, as is the case of an ingenious workshop in Mexico City, where father and son put knowledge and skill to do something they had never tried before.Working with clients in the United States, Mexico, Europe and Asia, Joel Escalona has positioned himself as one of the most influential designers on the Mexican scene due to his broad-spectrum projects: those that address an industrial need, propose an innovative solution and have had massive commercial success; and others with high conceptual content granting great artistic value. Balance is the conjunction of these two aspects of the designer's work.
