Handmade jewelry- Handmade bracelets from Guatemala (Part II)

26 05 2009

I wanted to run a second post based on a number of inquiries we have received. LatinArt-E Inc.  will be receiving  its first batch of Guatemalan bracelets in the next couple of weeks.  Each one of these unique bracelets are hand made in Guatemala by a a small group of talented indigenous women trying to support their work.  We are fortunate to have been in contact with them , but most important we are proud to have placed our first order with them, supporting this unique trade.  I have seen similar work in other parts of the Americas but never this detailed and elaborate.  Thank you for allowing us to bring you this unique Guatemalan trade.

Queriamos sumar un segundo topico sobre las pulseras de Guatemala basado en un numero de preguntas que hemos recibido.  LatinArt-E Inc.  estara ya pronto recibiendo el primer cargamiento de puleras en las proximas dos semanas.  Cada una de estas pulseras son unicas, hechas a mano por un groupo pequeno indigeno de mujeres en Guatemala.  Nos sentimos afortunados de estar en contacto con ellas, y orgollusos de aver puesto nuestra primera orden, apoyandoles en estre trabajo tan unico.  La verdad es que si hemos visto trabajo similar en otras partes de Latinoamerica pero nunca con este tipo de labor y detalle. Gracias por darnos la oportunidad de traerles este trabajo unico desde Guatemala.

Ceramic clocks- very cool

21 05 2009

We found a great blog on ceramic cloks- Shirley does a beautiful job on these pieces.  We hope to get to know Shirley better.

She writes:  “I started making ceramics clocks way back in 1999 when they were still a very novel item. In my earlier clocks I did away with numbers and instead started using partitions and curved surfaces more intutive to the ceramic process. The choice of different glazes a riot of colors also was meant to distinguish between the 12 parts.

This particular piece was fabulous, the glazes came beautifully subdued in the wood kiln.”

I found a very itersting blog about the journey of Julie and her quilt.  Julie is a hadmakes her quilts and blogs to the world from Argentina.  I had never come across or known anything about the creation of a quilt in such a fun descriptive as you will see on her blog.  I would love to get a hold of one of her quilts and tell the world how great they are.  Julie, keep up the great work;  LatinArt-E Inc enjoys your work.

Encontre un blog que esta bastante interesante, se trata sobre la creacion de una colcha de Julie.  Julie hace estas colchas a mano y las presenta al mundo por medio de su blog desde Argentina.  Nunca habia encontrado algo similar donde la narracion descriptiva capta a la audiencia como lo veran en su blog.  Me encantaria en un futuro cercano tener una de sus colchas y tambioen decirle al mundo que tan calientitas estan.  Julie, te mandamos un saludo y animo para que sigas adelante;  has captado a LatinArt-E Inc con tus colchas.

Flexible Pewter lines-

15 05 2009

Pewter-Pewter is an alloyed metal made primarily from tin, with a small component of lead, copper, bismuth, or antimony. It has been traditionally used to make tableware and decorative items. The metal is highly ductile, meaning that it can easily be worked, embossed, or carved. The malleable nature of pewter has been harnessed for thousands of years, at least since Roman times, and the metal was at one point highly prized.

Latin Art-E Inc. has in place two unbelievable individuals that can do magic with this material.   The interesting part that we have found out is that most of the existing designs are not an exact match to the American market; therefore we are going to do something exciting.  We are opening our emails to receive what you would like to see as far as designs, categories below.  The winner will have their first name after the winning line and will receive the wining product for free.

What Latin art should you expect to see?

14 05 2009

Our logo is  ‘Your passport to Latin America”,  meaning that you choose what you would like to see.  We would love to hear from you as to what you think when you hear “Latin America Art”,  is it a precious little item from your country?, or perhaps something you saw during one of your most recent trips.  Is it the memory of your backyard accented with abstract metal art?

To me it boils down to feeling melancholy about a distant memory, remembering the hands that carved these pieces.

As a start up, we are listening closely to our customers.  Be a part of Latin Art-E Inc., and share your story. . . stay tuned for our full story next.
