Beatriz Ball Collection
Beatriz Ball’s roots in design go back to the early 1980’s, when the Cuban-born designer began working hand-in-hand with skilled metalware artisans on the outskirts of Mexico City, creating updated, innovative designs in a special lustrous alloy of many metals.
She now operates a foundry dedicated solely to the manufacture of her own designs where she employs over 170 of the best and most gifted artisans in Mexico.
In an intensely handmade process, skilled craftsmen create each one of the pieces, one at a time, utilizing the same molding and casting methods the Greeks and Romans did thousands of years ago.
Ball has developed her own metal alloy of that resembles silver in color and luster but requires no polishing, and is perfectly suited for today’s casual lifestyles. Respectful of the environment, all products are made of sustainable, eco-friendly, and recycled materials.
“I start every one of our designs following lifestyle always having use and practicality in mind and creating them for the way our customers live and entertain,” said Beatriz Ball.
Based in New Orleans, Beatriz Ball has been awarded the prestigious ARTS Award for excellence in the Tabletop category five times, and her products were chosen as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things in 2017. Now a lifestyle brand of renown, Beatriz Ball products in metal, wood, ceramic, linen, glass and melamine are sold in over 1800 stores nationwide, as well as in Neiman Marcus, Harrods and Selfridges.
