Juan Jose Saucedo
I met Juan Jose in the small town of Santa Clara del Cobre, in the state of Michoacan Central Mexico. I was truly amazed when I saw his works at his small showroom, just inside his home, he is certainly not a big manufacturer (like some unfortunately have become losing some of the truly handcrafted process), but instead he has kept his family tradition intact and proud to keep it that way. Juan Jose is the 3rd generation on this tradition, here are Juan Jose own words about his background:
"My grandfather taught my father and I the skills and techniques. Slowly, drop by drop I have been absorbing the skills needed for this wonderful job. My father has won awards Internationally and nation wide and I myself have won first and second places awards nation wide and Internationally. We are 8 people in the family and men and women work as a team to comply with any order. Most of us are winners of different prizes and awards within this guild".
About the process of making art work in copper , Juan Jose gave me a fair explanation: "Once the metal is melted with heat, we hammer it as many times as need it to shape the piece we are creating. To obtain the natural color the piece is heated and introduced in water. For the dark and light coffee colors, we use a technique with fire to give the different tonalities".
The basic tool Juan Jose uses is the hammer and tongs combined with the power of fire. He makes all his tools by hand since the family doesn't use any machinery in their facilities and only recycled copper with the highest level of purity. "It would not be possible to manufacture with such a quality if it was not for the purity of the copper".
I'm sure you will appreciate Juan Jose skills when you receive your Mexican Art, the passion, love and many years of tradition will be taken to your home ambient.
Juan Jose is always happy to hear back from our customers and when we show him pictures of the final projects he brings a big smile to his face, encouraging him to keep this wonderful tradition alive.
Thank you in the name of Juan Jose and his family.

What is the Patina Finish?
Copper metal will create a most desire greenish patina with time and in natural circumstances, however this could be a good thing for some people but for most it is not necessary good. We apply a process to generate a coating (patina) in the copper tub that will prevent the greenish natural patina to occur over time. Also we are able to generate different patina colors to give a better matching look to your specific environment. The most common patina colors we use are: Natural, Dark and Green. With the patina pre-made in your tub you can rest assure your copper tub will be protected for any future natural greenish patina occurrence, even though some people may like that finish as well we can offer a greenish patina color.
What is the size of the drain hole? Is that American Standard?
The tub has a standard American drain size of 2 inches to accommodate the American requirements plumbing drain. Also the hole has a flange around it to make your fitting flat with the tub.
Does the tub have an overflow?
Since the bathtub is free standing, there would be no way to drain the water. So there is no overflow.
