This copper vase is twisted with prongs all the way around it. Because all the prongs are done using just a hammer, this makes it a very special piece of art. We got this vase from the skilled copper-smiths from Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico. A unique gift for your loved ones or for yourself. If you like this shiny texture, this vase is perfect for you. Once the form is given on this item, the polished shiny texture is made by applying an abrasive substance (metal wax) to it. You can put flowers in it to enhance the flowers natural beauty. Suitable for your coffee table or near your fireplace. The hammer footprint is very visible because this vase was made from one sheet of copper. Hammering the red-hot copper is an ancient technique the copper-smiths used. No sophisticated tools were used; a furnace to heat the copper and a hammer to give it the shape were used.
