Corazon Amoroso

Master tin artisan José Luz has been working in tin for fifty years.  The piece shown in the four minute video below is a culmination of hours of design time, over six hours in the studio creating the heart – cutting, stamping and working the tin in various ways in order to create a piece with both beauty and texture, finished in the evening hours with layers of paint and antiquing.

Meet our latest creation – Corazon Amoroso de Jesus Sacramento, a piece inspired by his love of art, mixed with religious faith.
Available in our store now.
