"One of three of Francos mirrors that will grace our walls"

We love these Tiwanaku mirrors by Angel Franco. One hangs in our living room, this one is in a bathroom, and a third will soon hang in an office. They have a calming, even mystical quality to them. All good vibes. We live in the not-so-sunny PNW, so they help reflect more light around our space. Yay!

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

"Metal work has been part of Peruvian culture since before the Incas. It is an inheritance that my father taught me and I have taught my children. In our workshop, we make many replicas of Inca and traditional Peruvian art. We use brass, copper and silver like our ancestors did. This keeps our culture alive."
