Artisan Molcajete Salt Dish
This lovely molcajete style salt dish was hand-pounded and forged in fire by award winning artist Sergio Velasquez in the small Pueblo Magico Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan Mexico. This little miniature makes a wonderful gift for the person who has it all - and is a conversation piece for your table.
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.
