• I first visited Santa Clara del Cobre in Michoacan, Mexico in the 1980s, a village that has worldwide fame for its copperwork. During subsequent trips, I always made time to visit the Museo Nacional del Cobre, a wonderful place to see the best of the best, full of award winning masterpieces that date back decades.   It was during one of those visits that this bowl caught my eye.  I was immediately fascinated with the organic pre-Hispanic design, its full belly implying abundance. I had to find the artist! It took a bit of digging but eventually I met Master Coppersmith Antonio Ziranda and thus began our working relationship. The original bowl is huge, 20" wide. I asked Antonio to create a scaled down version and it is beautiful.

This is one of the designs they asked us to make and it was so popular it became a staple in their store for years. Antonio Ziranda has created a small edition and it's just as beautiful today as it was 30 years ago.

  • Grueby Faience Company was founded in 1894 by William Grueby who was inspired by the matte glazes on French pottery, particularly the cucumber green that became the company's hallmark, and the refined simplicity of Japanese ceramics. In its heyday Grueby was sold through Tiffany Studios in New York City and Gustav Stickley who incorporated their tiles in his furniture. Alas, due to bankruptcy, a fire and eventual sale the company closed for good in 1920. This beauty measures 12" high and has a subtle, abstracted leaf and pod design in repousse.

  • Working with copper has been a tradition in Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan since pre-Hispanic times. A few of the workshops in Santa Clara have modernized but Antonio Ziranda is keeping the old tradition alive, as do all the craftsmen that I work with.  Michoacan is an agricultural state filled with pine forests, croplands, and fruit orchards. This indigenous design was inspired by the segments you see in oranges and grapefruits, many of which are grown in the nearby Tierra Caliente (hot land), not far from Antonio's village.
