Quirarte Family from Mexico

is the artisan in the spotlight this week

Artisan Quirarte Family Mexico's Quirarte Family includes Daniel and Otilia and their five adult children. 'Blown glass and forged metal arts are a family legacy that can be traced back to previous family generations. We began to wonder about changing the way blown glass looked and the way color could be expressed. We work with recycled glass and use long metal pipes through which we blow out the molten glass and shape it. We place the piece in a kiln and leave it there for 24 hours, and we incorporate gold or silver leaf.'
