We took an overnight trip to Morelia to get some shopping done at Home Depot and Costco. On the way, we stopped in at Santa Clara del Cobre to buy a copper sink for one of the apartments my wife is remodeling. We didn't buy the sink at this particular shop, but we did purchase other items and I got a lesson in copper work. This man spends up to five days working on a single one of these pots - firing a half dozen at a time (shown here) then hammering the heated copper into shape before repeating again and again. Made us appreciate the finished product all the more.
