About

"As a Mexican and Oaxacan, but more as Omar, I see death as something present. It is something that is a part of life and when you think about death, you begin to value a lot of things. Death is important to me because it’s a constant threat. If you think about dying now, you would probably do things that in another moment you would say, “I’ll do it later.” I see death as an opportunity to live a better life...a continuation of something," says Mexican ceramist Omar Hernández. Omar Hernandez is a Mexican ceramist born and raised in Oaxaca, Mexico. As a child, growing up in a family of potters he didn't have much interest in making pottery, but in his early 20's he realized he could do other things with clay that weren't necessarily utilitarian pieces. It was then that Omar started his skull collections, most representative of his work. "Death as a subject has always fascinated and inspired me. Death is something that....grabs everyone evenly. Death doesn’t respect the rich or poor...there is no black skin, white skin, or yellow skin. We all have one skull underneath our skin. So that’s it," says Omar. Each skull is handcrafted with different elements of nature and tradition from his home state, Oaxaca. -Materials &Technique- Omar uses natural pigments from soil minerals & oxides (copper & manganese) 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 for every design *Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, slight variations enhance authenticity.
