We are often asked how we do it, the story of the design and where it is made.
The creative process is always unique.
One example is the Medusa Pendant.
It started with the Greek Myth of Medusa. She was a Gorgan Monster and instead of hair she had venomous snakes.
First the design.
Then the final approved fixture.
It shrinks down for a different look!
Meet some of our wonderful artisans.
Beto, the fabulous artisan that helped the the creation of the Medusa, is holding the new Large Medusa during the oxidizing period. It still needs some twisting and lacquer to make it look like the photo above.
Gerardo is a double leg amputee, but he doesn't let that slow him down. He specializes in the hand punching out of the tin. The Lagrimas Buenas is one of his works. Seen holding the Primavera prototype.
Salvador is our wood carver. You can see our design in the foreground. It will one day become a star mirror.
The work in progress. Notice the rays start out as flat surfaces, and Salvador painstakingly carves each one out. The Fleur des Lis Leaves seen both smooth and carved.
The star after the mirrors and silver leaf has been added.
