Fine Crafts & Imports Expands Its Product Line To Hammered Copper Arts & Crafts

December 1th 2004. Fine Crafts & Imports, a Camarillo, CA based company, brings the best of Mexican culture through its fine arts & crafts collection. For centuries, Mexican handcrafts have been one of the most original and unique arts in the world. A long history of dedication and teaching passed down through generations has created what the contemporary Mexican crafts are:

A legacy of art and creativity combined to create objects whose
beauty compete with the best in the whole world!

Every native Mexican group has mostly preserved their traditions and crafsmanship skills; and in some cases they were enhanced by Spaniards influence specially by religious leaders who promoted a learning environment. Among other Mexican arts & crafts centers, there is Santa Clara del Cobre in the state of Michoacan, México whose economy relies mostly in its coppersmithing activity. Because of this great tradition, this town has created national-award-winning artists whose creations had pleased visitors to museums, collectors, and even Mexican presidents.

Fine Crafts & Imports is pleased to bring this unique art and make it available to interested collectors and the general public at www.finecraftsimports.com. Among other folk art, and home décor items, the copper arts & crafts collection consists of:

Hammered copper vases, hammered kitchen and bathroom
copper sinks, hammered copper bathtubs
and museum-quality art in copper by
Mexican artist Abdon Punzo Angel

Hammering the red-hot copper is an ancient technique the coppersmiths in Santa Clara still use, where no automatic or power tools are used, just the furnace to heat the copper and a homemade hammer to give it the shape and the surface texture; most of the basic tools used are created by themselves. The copper is given several finishes and several combinations with other metals that generate infinite possibilities to the art creation. Among all those possibilities, the natural copper color is the collector's preferred finish. This reddish/oxidated texture is characteristic of natural copper when it is cooled down from red-hot temperature using cold water, technique commonly used by the coppersmiths in Santa Clara.

Without any doubt, what it makes every copper item a unique piece of art relies in the way it is raised from one sheet of copper:

Just the hammer and the furnace are used to give shape
to a copper sheet, usually there are no welded joints,
and any embossed decoration is extracted
from the original flat copper sheet
