The Beatriz Ball Collection takes shape in a foundry in Mexico. More than a dozen different sets of hands are involved in the creation of each piece, thanks to the skilled metalworkers and artisans who design and manufacture them. The sandcast aluminum metalware includes collectable trays, pedestals and bowls, and features unique, hand-forged patterns ideal for client or hostess gifts.

The Beatriz Ball Collection, which has been on display at the Dallas Market Center, has garnered the top prize in the ARTS awards’ tabletop category three times and has been nominated for the honor six times.
