Sergio is an artisan who works in Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacán. At the age of eight, his father and grandfather taught him and his brother how to work copper. He belongs to the fourth generation in the family dedicated to this trade.

In his home, he has a large photo of a group of men, including his grandfather, around a large copper pot. The photo is from 1968, and the vessel was made in Sta. Maria del Cobre and was used for the eternal fire for the Olympic Torch when the Olympics were held in Mexico.

The copper manufacturing work is done piece by piece, using the traditional and artistic technique of "copper hammering". Each artisan invests part of his soul and spirit to create unique, high quality pieces that can be used as decoration or for utilitarian purposes.

The family is flexible, enterprising and ready to face the challenges of a globalized world, with a great openness to new ideas. They work from the heart and give each client value and attention to detail.

Sergio has won many local and national awards for his work, his most recent being a First Place in the National Popular Toy Contest and a Second Place in the National Hand Hammered Copper Contest. He has won the Grand National Folk Art Award. There is a piece of his in San Diego, California, in the permanent collection of the Museum of Man.

Sergio and his family are featured in the book Rhythm of Fire: Art and Artisans of Santa Clara de Cobre sponsored by the Cuentos Foundation of Chicago.
