See beautiful hammered copper vessels made long ago and today at Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico, a small town in the southwest state of Michoacan. From nothing more than a chunk of copper or sheet metal, artists here have spent centuries creating both useful and decorative copper items, with specially made hand tools and machinery. The richness of the work has undergone a marked improvement in design, materials, and finish during the second half of the twenty century. Hundreds of copper items from the Museo Nacional de Cobre illustrate the arts evolution. 393 colorful photographs, an historical perspective, list and introductions to 540 copper artists, and detailed descriptions combine in this impressive reference. Be inspired to visit Mexicos Michoacan state and Santa Clara del Cobre, to meet the artists in their workshops. AUTHOR: Sandy Baum, a freelance photographer and writer, has written other books on Mexican architecture and interior design. He lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
