Their durable designs will also enhance weddings, birthdays and special occasions to create happy moments with designs that never go out of style.

    Their groundbreaking products use a special alloy of many metals in all 26 distinctive collections available, ranging from pitchers and chip-and-dips to spreaders and wine coasters. Inspired by nature, art and various cultural traditions, these innovative pieces are ultimately influenced by stories from the people who use them and the artisans who make them by hand. Easy to maintain and versatile, these eco-friendly items not only transform a room with their elegance, but can also be safely used to heat or chill foods.

    Though they design for what Beatriz Ball terms the “now,” that doesn’t mean they forgot about their roots. Beginning in 1991, President and CEO Beatriz Ball started working with skilled metalware artisans in the outskirts of Mexico City, using ancient art of sand casting: pouring a premium quality alloy of molten aluminum onto sand molds, and then going through four levels of polishing. Twenty-three years later, with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship, the company is now a six-time nominee and three-time winner of the prestigious ARTS Award in the Tabletop category, with Ball garnering a nomination for Product Designer of the Year in 2014.
