About

This solid tzalam sculpture is created by renowned Mexican designer Pedro Cerisola, whose work is in the permanent collection of the National Autonomous University Science Museum and has been exhibited in the Franz Mayer Design Museum, the Contemporary Art Museum Rufino Tamayo and the Mexico City Modern Art Museum, among other venues. Based on a profound mathematical research, Estudio Cerisola combines advanced technology with highly skilled craftsmanship, to create intricate pieces from high quality materials with an impeccable finish. This unique sculpture is conformed of eight handcrafted modules, each fabricated from two single CNC cut solid tzalam wood pieces. The union of the modules is done based on the geometry of the octahedron. Tzalam, known as the Caribbean walnut, is a tropical high-density wood that grows in Southern Mexico. Its color is a mixture between red and yellow, which ends up giving a cinnamon like tone and it is strong and resistant to weather conditions, water, and humidity. The assembly of the pieces, the polishing and the final finish in natural oil is carried out manually.
