Our price: $250.00
This copper pot is pronged and twisted all the way around it, this makes it a very special piece of art, because all the pronges are done using just a hammer. This pot was made from one sheet of copper, raised with the artist hammer. Hammering the red-hot copper is an ancient technique the coppersmiths use, where no sophisticated tools are used, just the furnace to heat the copper and a hammer to give it the shape. We got this pot from the skilled coppersmiths from Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico. A unique gift for your loved ones or for yourself. The hammer footprint is very visible. The reddish/oxidated texture is characteristic of natural copper when it is cooled down from red-hot temperature using cold water, technique that the coppersmiths use. The two handles are rivetted to the main body.
