I'm Laila, a designer from Mexico City, currently working in a small pottery workshop where I create handmade products, mostly tableware & planters.
As a designer, I found very interesting learning about the processes involved in the production methods of objects, must of them industrial, but the thing that got me into working with clay was the possibility of making objects with my hands, playing with the material and adding creativity and personality in every step of the process.
The story behind each object, their materiality, their functionality and how they affect our everyday lives, shapes my work.
For me, research, experimentation and details are the most essential aspects of my creative process, with results in objects made with patience and dedication.
Feel free to contact me if you want to know more about my work!
