About

“I like the smell of the holy leaf. It’s a part of cuisine, medicine, and our traditions, and I really enjoy its texture. The other day I was eating a tamale and removed the holy leaf that was wrapped around it. The texture that comes out when you remove the leaf and the aroma…that is something I love! In my work, I try to capture the experience of that moment.” – Omar Hernández Tamale is a traditional Mesoamerican dish made of corn dough filled with meat, cheeses, fruit, vegetable or chilies, which is steamed in a corn husk or a leaf. Omar’s piece invites you to experience, live, and enjoy the simple things in life. It’s an invitation to taste the world in its different forms, exploring and connecting with powerful elements. Materials and technique: The leaf is an authentic reproduction of the hoja santa (holy leaf) used for traditional dishes. Omar’s selection of fine white and Oaxacan Donaji clay captures the essence of this ingredient. Omar uses natural pigments from soil minerals and oxides to decorate each piece. He finds these in the different types of soil near his house in the Central Valley of Oaxaca and in the Mixtec Region on his routine walks. He says, “Sometimes I stop in the highway to collect a bit of soil when I see a beautiful color. We just find each other on the way!” Made in Oaxaca, México Limited edition of 30 skulls Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, slight variations enhance authenticity.
