Artisan Martini Glasses

Artisan Martini Glasses


This beautiful Martini glass was hand-pounded and forged in fire by award winning artist Sergio Velasquez in the small Pueblo Magico Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan Mexico.  These are a traditional style for serving martinis, margaritas  or wine (We do not recommend you drink hot beverages from copper!)    


Copper-making has been a long-standing tradition in the territory of the P'urepecha peoples, who were proficient with metal-smithing prior to the arrival of the Spanish.  In the 1500s, Don Vasco Quiroga built a smelter in Santa Clara del Cobre, and the towns artisans have been highly productive since.  If you are interested in art tours, please contact us for more information about our area!
