a plant pot as symbol of life



Tepalcate originally comes from the Náhuatl word ‘Tepalcatl’, which means clay junk. Nowadays many Mexican people refer to Tepalcates as broken pieces of what once used to be a complete piece of clay. Yunúen Hernández designed this object with an appealing grooved finish to be a complete master piece for holding plants, a symbol of life, which was maybe the most important gift her Mexican ancestors gave to their gods. The pots are available in different appealing colors.
