This 12" tray is completely handmade -- formed and hammered -- from thick, 100% recycled solid Copper. It is handmade by artisans in Mexico, and designed in Texas.
These trays are made in the traditional way, in a method that began began in Mesoamerica and has been practiced and passed along continuously for over 1,000 years. These trays are finely made from thick, 100% Copper. They may age and patina with time, but will not lose their copper color like plated pieces.
Copper, with its warm glow and inherent patinas that change over time, has been a part of the human hearth and civilization for thousands of years, used in ancient health, healing and spiritual practices around the world for a wide range of benefits. It is a naturally clean material with strong antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.
