Tin smithing in Mexico is an age-old craft, hearkening back to the colonial period when exquisite candelabras, niches and altarpieces were fashioned for the great cathedrals of New Spain. Elegantly carved candle holders, magical shadow-casting luminarias, as well as embossed frames, engraved crosses and more contemporary style pieces, borrow heavily from traditional Mexican designs.
Iron crafting, like tin smithing, shares a colonial legacy. Hand-wrought iron originally fashioned as adornments and fixtures for the beautiful churches, which dominate Mexico's landscape, provide the inspiration for our lovely candle holders and our more contemporary floor and table lamps.
