Lourdes is a contemporary artist who created this bright, bold signature skillet as a way to bring Day of the Dead celebrations to people everywhere. Learn more about her work, the design, and the holiday that inspired it.

“Mexico is a country full of tradition and roots and it’s worth it to know about these stories,” Lourdes says. “Before Mexico was Mexico, Day of the Dead was celebrated in different areas and parts of Central and South America, and each group celebrated in different ways. Every kind of culture had a specific kind of celebration, and it’s really interesting to know about, to learn about this history.”
