San Martin de las Pirámides, State of Mexico

Hand-carved by artisans from the Teotihuacán region, this set of 4 obsidian and chalcedony coasters carries with it the heritage of thousands of years translated into the mastery of handling these volcanic stones. Forged in fire, obsidian was one of the most important ritual materials in pre-Hispanic Mexico and throughout Mesoamerica. Typically used for arrowheads, spears, ritual knives, necklaces, sceptres, urns, and sculptures. This set is part of the Ensamble Artesano collection, transmitting the sobriety of the material of an unmistakable black, combined with the unique veins of chalcedony, another volcanic stone typical of the central region of the country and with properties close to quartz. Both materials combine to give your table a contemporary identity in design and meaning through the legacy they convey.
