HOW COPPER TABLE TOPS ARE MADE

MEXICAN HAND-HAMMERED COPPER TABLE TOPS - From start to finish

Mexican hand-hammered copper comes from Santa Clara del Cobre in the state of Michoacan located in the P’urhépecha plateau area of Mexico. Copper has been worked in this area since the pre-Hispanic times. The P’urhépechas were the most advanced in metallurgy which is the reason they were never conquered by the Aztecs. Today, it is said that 10,000 hands work copper in Santa Clara. Statistically, over 80% of the 38,000 population work in the copper industry.

Santa Clara became the most important copper smelting area in New Spain; however, the mines were tapped out in the mid- 20th century. Today, 400,000 tons of used copper arrive in Santa Clara each week for smelting and production.
