Tin Art

The Radiance of Tin Art

Tinwork is one of Mexico's oldest crafts. Rooted in Spanish colonial times, tinplate workers manufactured it by dipping thin sheets of iron into molten tin. This coats the iron with a bright, durable surface that is resistant to rusting. Our tin figures are entirely handmade (cutout, punched, embossed and soldered) by craftsmen using great precision and artistic flair. Painted with bright, durable lacquer and enamel colors, tin figures are inexpensive, lightweight and long lasting. In modern Mexico, the two centers of tin smithing are Oaxaca and San Miguel de Allende, and we carry products from both cities. For more details, download our promotional flyer at this link.

Our handmade Mexican tin ornaments and figures include tin heart plaques, Christmas stars and angels, flat ornaments and small wall mirrors. We buy from several tinsmith families in Oaxaca, which enables us to offer a wide range of styles and prices. We have the web's largest collection of handcrafted tin hearts, ranging from 12-inch wall decor to tiny magnetic hearts.
