The art of embossed metals to give an
aesthetic aspect to some pieces, was originated many
years before Christ, and was considered a utilitary
work to improve the finishing of other materials and
At the present time it has managed to develop to the
poin of becoming an art of great splendor, born in the
hands of expert craftsmen who with their ability and
creativity, manage to turn a metal leaf into a true
work of art, helped by instruments called striker pins,
they manage to print in a metal leaf figures in low
relief and up to three-dimensional.
This technique arrived in Mexico by the necessity to
protect the icons of the churches of the inclemencies
of smoke of chandeliers, the environment and time itself.
For that reason now we have reunited in a single gallery
the best craftsmen of Guanajuato, Mexico, cradle of
the International Cervantino Festival, so that you can
be charmed as we are by their gorgeous work.
