The Magic Of Patzcuaro (Part Two)
Engraved Lacquer Painted Wood Plate
El Senor (Left!) Takes A Break With A Local Vendor
Life Art Among Textiles For Sale
During our stay in Patzcuaro, we took a day trip to Santa Clara Del Cobre also known as The Copper City. Santa Clara is a "must see" city, that will have you saying, "I must return with a trailer"! The coppersmiths are artistic metalworkers with creations that raise the bar far above the commonly known copper pots and pans. The designs, colors and hammered textures left me in awe. If you can imagine it, they can make it. Some of my favorite pieces were kitchen and bathroom sinks, dinning tables and chairs, kitchen cabinet doors, sideboards, entertainment units, and wall tiles. Unfortunately I am unable to share photos of these pieces, no photography is allowed in the retail stores.

Just between us, La Senora may need more than a trailer on a return trip..........
