On the outskirts of Mexico City, in the region known as the State of Mexico, there are numerous artisanal communities. These places, such as Naucalpan, Texcoco, Jiquipilco, El Oro and Toluca, are at the forefront of Mexican crafts. Though seemingly on the margins of modernity, in the hinterlands of the country’s capital, their work is cutting edge. They meld modern processes with traditional techniques to create unique products. The results are pieces which are both classic and contemporary, and wholly Mexican. It is from these metalworking communities that innovations in design, production and art arise. This unique piece is just one example of the progressive, innovative work that these communities are engaging in.
Aluminum only became widespread and affordable in the 20th century. Prior to this, it was one of the rarest metals around, and reserved for the wealthiest in society. Napoleon treated his favorite guests to his precious aluminum cutlery, which reflected his power and wealth. Technological and scientific developments, however, have made the material ubiquitous. We use it and dispose of it, without thought, every day. This gorgeous piece shows how beautiful this material can be, and leads us to reassess our view of it.
