About the Artisan: Don Cesar Santiago
Don Cesar Santiago has been working tin for over 18 years. He’s a 3rd generation artesano from Oaxaca de Juarez, Oaxaca who learned his craft from his father. Each piece starts off as a flat sheet of tin, the heart is drawn and cut out, and then the banging begins. With each strike of the hammer and chisel, every detail emerges to form the ridges, textures, and details that make each piece unique. A father of 3, Don Cesar, supports his family with his artwork and features many pieces in restaurants and galleries throughout the city.
About the Artisan: Pedro De Los Reyes
Pedro De Los Reyes and his family all work the wooden loom and make textiles on the outskirts of the small pueblo of Mitla, Oaxaca. His family workshop represents 6 families, all related to him, and about 12 active weavers who all help in the family workshop. His family is Triqui, an indigenous people from the “Mixteca Baja” near the Sierras Mixteca of western Oaxaca. It’s known as the poorest region of the state of Oaxaca, which is why his family moved to Mitla, for better economic opportunities.
