The nature of materials
At studio davidpompa we create products with a unique and imperfect nature, due to the manufacturing process or the material used, offering a new experience through our reinterpretation of Mexican culture. No piece is the same, each piece in our collection represents an honest, timeless and unique design.
This stone encloses small fossil remains, giving the pieces different tones in a palette from white to gray. No single piece is the same.
One characteristic of this stone is its texture and porosity, which varies in intensity from piece to piece. The irregularities that form on the surface are normal and enhance the finish.
Volcanic rock inclusions
Mineral inclusions in the stone are part of its character. Bringing different nuances to the surface.
Volcanic rock porosity
Formed through lava solidification, it has a high-level hardness and porosity. Other stones can also be embedded in its formation.
Travertino color range
This stone has a unique orange and reddish tone, containing mineral inclusions that range from dark gray to white. Its patterns make each piece unique.
Cantera rosa inclusions
Formed by a mix of ash and dust, textures and tonalities are formed. Its speckles in darker variations are its signature, together with its characteristic color.
Wood knots and streaks
During a tree´s growth, straight, wavy or crisscross streaks are formed. Knots are also normal in wood, they are embedded branches which create singularities in the texture.
Handblown glass air bubbles
Being recycled glass, air gets trapped inside the material during the process, creating tiny air bubbles, with variable sizes. The glass thickness irregularities are particular to its handmade process.
Barro Negro irregularities
Barro Negro is kneaded to extract as much air as possible, but there are bubbles or pores trapped inside the material, they become noticeable after polishing the pieces. This is part of its nature.
Brass porosity and tone
After the smelting of brass, the contraction process occurs, the metal passes from a liquid to a solid state, generating pores in the metal. These are part of its singularity. The tone may vary from piece to piece.
After the smelting of chrome, the contraction process occurs, the metal passes from a liquid to a solid state, generating pores in the metal. These are part of its singularity. The tone may vary from piece to piece.
After the smelting of copper, the contraction process occurs, the metal passes from a liquid to a solid state, generating pores in the metal. These are part of its singularity. The tone may vary from piece to piece.
