Litto Gomez of La Flor Dominicana is getting into the ashtray business with a new project that he has launched called Ashtronomy.
It is part of the La Flor Dominicana catalog, but Gomez created a space called the Ashtronomy Lab at his factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic in which he developed the ashtrays. To do so, he spent the better part of a year working on the project, using a liquid mica mixture to create various shapes and colors.
The line is debuting with a blue, four-rest ashtray that features a silhouette of Gomez smoking a cigar and the La Flor Dominicana word mark on the side. The company is limiting it to 125 pieces, each with an MSRP of $120. It is available at select retailers beginning this week, and will be available on LFDShop.com the week of March 7.
More releases are planned for the Ashtronomy brand, as the company says that it will be adding more through periodic small batch releases.
