South of Mexico City in the state of Michoacan, in the small city of Santa Clara del Cobre, (meaning copper) lived two families of copper smiths, the Angels (An-hill) and the Punzos. Their techniques are so ancient that they go all the way back to the copper age that preceded the Bronze Age three thousand years ago. Hammered Copper presents wonderful examples of copper from this area. From nothing more than a chunk or flat sheet of metal, artists here have spent centuries creating both uneful adn decorative items with specially made hand tools.
