REVIEWSCopper Sinks, a Treasure From Mexico.
Traveling the world will take you to many places and in some of them
you may even find treasures. But treasures are not always made of gold
or diamonds. Treasures are also made of copper. And in Santa Clara del
Cobre in the Mexican state of MichoacÃ¡n you will understand why
treasures are also made of this modest and noble metal.
the 29th element, is believed to have been mined for about 5000 years
now accompanying humanity and civilization through most of his great
technological accomplishments. In modern times copper is an ever
present element in the electrical and electronic industry. But thatâ€™s
not the only area of our modern lives where copper is present. Since
ancient times Mexican artisans have used copper as a valuable material
to fabricate beautiful and intrincate artisan works, among them there
is one branch of artisans that combine practicality and art in their
work. They are those dedicated to fabricate beautiful raw Copper Sinks
in Santa Clara del Cobre.
These sinks are fabricated entirely by
hand using the same ancient techniques of their indigenous ancestors.
Even gas is forbidden to heat and soften the metal, they use only
charcoal in small fires in the shops and helped by their inseparable
hammer artisans give life and form to the copper plates placed into the
fire. But this is not all, after getting the desired shape, the sinks
surface has to be treated so that they will last and look like new for
many years. For this they use a process called â€œpatinationâ€ which is
done under heat and that gives the surface of the copper sinks its
characteristic color and durability.
Many people may think that copper sinks are soft or fragile but thatâ€™s not so. Laurelwood Elementary
