Item details

This photo frame is crafted from tin with hand punched designs. The back includes the artist's signature. Frames can easel or wall hang in landscape or portrait. Each frame is individual, the photo represents a general style for the punched work.

I am a fifth generation tinsmith and juried member of the Spanish Colonial Art Society. I teach classes and carry supplies for tinsmiths. I use traditional techniques and tools handed down through the generations of my family.

Early Spanish Colonial settlers in the New Mexico territory recycled many things to sustain themselves in the harsh desert landscape. The silversmith's were unable to find enough silver to create artwork, so they turned to recycling tin. The tin was brought to New Mexico primarily by the U.S. Army garrison across the Santa Fe Trail. It was bright, shiny food grade tin that had the look of silver.

Item does not look as pictured. The corners of the frame are not joined seamlessly. Instead there is a dull patina from whatever is used to attach them. Also the seller does not respond quickly to messages.
