trece cielos mugs was born out of the love of art, design and global trends translated into something useful, functional, durable and accessible like a mug, something that you could always use, see, touch, drink from and collect! trece cielos or thirteen heavens comes from the aztec vision of the vertical universe, the earth and the underworld afterlife. i am from mexico city and in love with this lunatic, artsy and cultural cathedral where the aztecs were conquered and eradicated. they believe in these 13 levels of consciousness of the underworld that helped to have a balance between life and death. all this history is stamped in my spirit and sometimes I feel my culture is unnoticed or under appreciated, so I try to portray it on my mugs and my artwork I am such a proud mexican living in the u.s.
