The beauty and craft of this table, inspired by Mathias Goeritz’s art, conveys a sense of emotional equilibrium. The hand-hammered surfaces of the table’s three segments – which can stand together or separately – produce a softly shimmering effect. Gloria Cortina’s work evokes the harmony that exists in our own complexity and contrast. She manipulates volume and proportion, space, texture, color, and shadow or light, to motivate the senses and stimulate conversation in each piece. Her conviction in this regard speaks to the permanence of her design, both in the creation of a lasting product, and within the greater context of her milieu evolving a Mexican aesthetic movement.
