Balance Bowls - Stone
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.Balance in Lava Stone is produced in Mexico in a family-owned workshop where several generations of craftsmen have worked with this material. With this piece of Balance Joel explores the importance of this material in history, since it has covered the entire spectrum of needs ranging from the practical to the spiritual, it has managed to become a timeless and highly effective element for design and contemporary art.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.
