A long standing tradition in Mexican culture, hammered metal was once relegated to gold, silver and copper – most of which were used to create instruments, weapons and jewelry. Iron was introduced in colonial times, and is primarily concentrated in the Southern states. Forged with extreme heat and hammering techniques, these hooks are the ideal way to display a range of pieces, including our cotton Nido hanging basket (pictured).
This family have been producing handmade iron works for generations. The men in this family produce these smaller pieces by heating and hammering to shape, along with incredibly detailed works of art that take months to complete. When possible, these artisans prefer to work with recycled industrial waste, both for cost and in the interest of an earth-friendly approach.
Approximately 19cm long
These pieces are incredibly resistant and do not require much maintenance. If they are placed outside in the elements, rust will eventually form, however we feel that this adds to the beauty of the piece.
The noted price is for a single hook. The Nido basket is sold separately. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image.
