Story Behind the Art:
 

Every piece crafted at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality."

"Hello. My name is J. Blas. From the time I was small I have enjoyed arts and crafts. I loved to dig and prepare clay to make my own pieces and from that time on I began to experiment with ceramics. When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop because I hate to ask anyone for work – I feel shy and ashamed. Due to my lack of experience, I had to shut it down and went to work in other studios as well as in a ceramics museum, where I learned everything – from how to look for clay to crafting techniques. Over time, I learned more and more and became aware of the critical stages that clay has, and where it is good to depend on other people to work it perfectly. And so I changed directions and began to work in wrought iron and blown glass. When things began to get better, I started to experiment with sheets of iron of different weights to give my works more movement.

"Currently I again have my own workshop where we craft a variety of products, mostly decorative. We cut the metal sheets and hammer them into shape. Then we weld them and add the details. For a clean appearance, we submerge them in an acid bath to remove grease and carbon. After that, they are treated to  rust before we paint them with a special, lead-free paint. We are the first workshop in the area to utilize a fine blowtorch as a work tool and to give more originality to our products. Every piece created at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. We are always developing new designs and products."

  • Just What I Wanted
    Verified Purchase

    After replacing a television I needed a lamp nearby but had neither floor or table space for one. A wall lamp was the answer but we didn't want the expense of installing one. This lamp served our purpose exactly. The piece is well made, the design is attractive, and it was very easy to hang. When the light is off it is a piece of sculpture. When lit kokapelli's outline is dramatic. We are very happy with it.

    Came beautifully packaged as a fine piece of art. The colors are vibrant and gives off a soft glow when lit. When it's turned off it looks like a metal sculpture. Well made, though the musical instrument does rememble a bong...it's a great piece! I love it!

    Exactly as pictured. Warm yellow-cast light. Nice conversation piece on the wall. Did take a while to get-a few weeks-but it ships fro Mexico, apparently. If you are a kokopelli collector, as I am, you will enjoy it.

  • Southwestern metal sculpture
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this for my daughter's front porch. She loves it. It's a fine crafted metal sculpture that comes to life when the light is turned on. I just bought another one for myself.

    It is just so fun to have. It hangs across from my favorite chair and I find myself admiring it daily. The light emmited is quite sufficient to equal and wall lamp too. Nice plus!
