Bring home a piece of unique Mexican artistry. Splendid artistic glass blowing and quality iron craftsmanship unite to create the Crimson Indio Glass Mask - available in a variety of glass colors. This culturally influenced glass and iron sculpture is equipped to hang on the wall or stand alone as a center piece on a table or shelf. Place a tea-light behind the glass face to add a subtle glow and great character to your interior or exterior decor. The primitive tribal inspired glass face is hand blown from recycled glass, each is accented with an eruption of dark Red dye that naturally spreads throughout the glass. The glass face sits securely in the hand forged iron stand that mounts and subtly compliments this unique sculpture.
The Iron Stand.
Hand forged from steel, designed to be simple yet contemporary. Each iron stand is fixed with a tiny metal disc shapped tray (2" in diameter) that allows you to mount a tea light, small candle, or small electrical votive. The Iron stand has 2 hand hammered iron scroll legs, it has charcoal galvanized finish The beautiful yet durable burnt charcoal finish is achieved through a process of heating the metal to high temperatures then treating it with a varnish and sealer. The result is stunning!
Artisan Glass Blowing
In the remote city of San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico, we work with the gifted local artisans to create these little unique treasures. We design the shape of the heart, which the artisans then take and create a mold to blow vibrant colored glass into.
The artisans blow recycled glass that was collected from local recycling yards. Mounds of discarded bottles are delivered by the truck-load to our studios, the glass is then crushed and heated in large kilns where temperatures reach up to 1500*F. Once molten hot glass is of proper consistency, it is then blown into a mold the colored dye is added during the blowing process while glass is molten hot. The dye naturally takes shape and spreads through the mask freely, (NO 2 MASKS WILL EVER HAVE THE SAME COLOR PATTERN / DESIGN)
