Omar’s designs are a beautiful, visual representation of contemporary Mexican designs aesthetics. From his unique wax, floral candles to minimalistic tableware, La Muerte Tiene Permiso never fails to make your home feel warm.
Founded by architect and designer Omar Ortiz Franco, he aimed to bring his expertise in design and his in-depth knowledge of Mexico to the table by creating one of a kind, clean homeware pieces to the world.
Each design is based around the traditions of Mexico, its rich history and folk stories told through time. The clean design aesthetic of the pieces makes it suitable for every home.
This series of clay tableware is made in the town of Reyes, Puebla, by a small community, where the tradition is for women to pick the clay from the mountains around the town. The colour of the clay is natural, coming from the mixture of clay and a local stone powder.
To create a vibrant colour and shine the pieces are then showered in liquid beeswax, creating a very thin cover that penetrates the first layers of the clay, to add an extra watertight layer without changing the taste of your food and it is resistant to boiling liquids.
Pair with the beeswax dinner plates for the full dining experience - feel free to mix and match the colours too!
