Iron welcome sign, 'Cat Smiles Welcome'

Item # 36908
Currently out of stock

Grinning contentedly, a smug kitty cat looks approvingly at visitors and guests. He tucks his tail around him and purrs a warm welcome. J. Blas sculpts the cheerful creature to adorn an original welcome sign. He first cuts the sheets of forged iron to size and hammers them into a three-dimensional shape. Welded together, they are adorned with airy cut-out work and finished with lead-free paint. Made in Mexico.

Artisan: J. Blas

Artisan J. Blas

"Hello. My name is J. Blas. From the time I was small I have enjoyed arts and crafts. I loved to dig and prepare clay to make my own pieces and from that time on I began to experiment with ceramics. When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop. Due to my lack of experience, I had to shut it down and went to work in a ceramics museum.

"Over time, I learned more and more and became aware of the critical stages that clay has, and where it is good to depend on other people to work it perfectly. And so I changed directions and began to work in wrought iron and blown glass. When things began to get better, I started to experiment with sheets of iron of different weights to give my works more movement.

"Currently I again have my own workshop where we craft a variety of products, mostly decorative. We cut the metal sheets and hammer them into shape. Then we weld them and add the details. After that, they are treated to retard rust before we paint them with a special, lead-free paint.

"We are the first workshop in the area to utilize a fine blowtorch as a work tool and to give more originality to our products. Every piece created at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. We are always developing new designs and products."
