About copper craftsmanship: Copper craftsmanship in Mexico has a rich history dating back to pre-Hispanic cultures. During the pre-Hispanic era, Mesoamerican civilizations mastered copper metallurgy, creating ornamental and utilitarian objects. With the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, influences merged, marking a change in copper craftsmanship. In the colonial period, exquisite ecclesiastical and goldsmith objects were produced. In the 19th century, copper creations diversified, including everyday objects and decorative elements.

Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan, has been an emblematic center for copper craftsmanship in Mexico. This community has kept alive the tradition of working with copper and has significantly contributed to the production of high-quality pieces. Currently, Mexican copper craftsmanship has experienced a renaissance and is appreciated both domestically and worldwide.

Maintenance and Care: Keeping copper utensils in good and shiny condition requires some effort and care. Necessary materials: Baking soda, Lemon, Salt, Flour, Soft cloth, Warm water, and Linseed oil.

Instructions: Wash the utensils: Start by washing your copper utensils with hot water and a mild soap. Rinse them thoroughly and dry them completely.

Create a paste: To remove stains and restore shine, mix baking soda and lemon juice in a bowl to form a paste. Apply this mixture to the stained areas of the utensils and let it sit for a few minutes.

Gently rub: Using a soft cloth or non-abrasive sponge, gently rub the stained areas with the paste. Baking soda and lemon will help eliminate stains and bring back the original shine of the copper.

Wash and rinse: After rubbing the stains, wash the utensils again with warm water and dry them well.

Polish with flour: To give them a shine, sprinkle some flour on a clean, dry cloth. Rub the copper utensils with this cloth in circular motions. This will give them a sparkling shine.

Protect with linseed oil: To prevent future stains and maintain shine, apply a thin layer of linseed oil to the copper utensils. Gently rub with a clean, dry cloth. The linseed oil will create a protective layer.

Proper storage: Store copper utensils in a dry place away from moisture to prevent stain formation.

By following these steps, your copper utensils will stay in excellent condition and retain their original shine. Remember, copper may develop a patina over time, giving it a unique look and enriching its beauty.
