WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT


nicole-rhea-wood-472-1.jpgFrosty Cool Drinks - Made from pure heavy gauge copper inside and out, the natural thermal conductivity of copper keeps drinks frosty cold. Much of the “copper” drinkware out there today is only copper plated on the outside, and doesn’t have the same properties as pure copper.

Elegant Design - the textured hammer marks, rich copper color, and stunning shine create an honestly simple and elegant statement piece.

Lifetime Guarantee - The craftsmanship on all Sertodo Copper products are guaranteed for life. You’ll never have to worry about it breaking or the handle snapping off. If it does, they’ll replace it for free. 

Future Family Heirloom - the classic design, pure heavy gauge copper, artisan craftsmanship and lifetime guarantee ensure it will be around for generations.

Also Available in 18 Ounce with Stainless Steel or Copper Handle

 

WHAT IS IT MADE OF?


nicole-rhea-wood-475-1.jpgSertodo Copper pieces are made from pure copper that comes from 100% recycled sources.

Copper is a soft, malleable metal that also happens to be a very good thermal conductor which makes it a perfect material for shaping into drinkware and serveware.

If left unpolished, it’s natural reddish brown color will turn a soft green color over time as it oxidizes and forms a patina finish. 

Copper’s occurrence in nature as one of the few metals that does not need to be extracted from an ore led to very early human use beginning around 8000 BC. 

 

HOW IS IT CRAFTED?


nicole-rhea-wood-478-1.jpg

The crafting process begins as several coppersmiths rhythmically take turns hammering a block of purified copper with sledgehammers while another slowly turns the piece. This slow methodically process literally beats the shine into the copper as it begins to take form.

Using a hammer and anvil, a coppersmith will then begin the process of skillfully shaping the piece into its final form one hammer strike at a time. This process becomes increasingly difficult as the copper stretches and takes form. You can tell if a hammered copper piece is made by hand or by machine by carefully inspecting the hammer marks….if they are all uniform in shape, size and perfectly aligned with no imperfections - it’s likely not made by hand.

After the body has been formed, the handles are then TIG welded to the body for superior strength and aesthetics.

Each piece is individually hand crafted so variations in appearance and other minor imperfections are to be expected.

 

WHO IS THE ARTISAN? - Sertodo Copper (Jonathan Beall)


copy-of-jb-work-resized.jpg

Sertodo Copper was founded in 1997 by Jonathan Beall. A chance encounter with a copper pedalar in Mexico led to a fascination with copper and the history behind the 1000 year old copper work tradition in southwestern Mexico.

After years apprenticing as a coppersmith in Mexico, Jonathan started creating his own designs that combine ancient tradition with modern aesthetics and functionality. He set up a workshop in Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico with a small group of coppersmiths that continue the tradition of copper work that began in the region over 1000 years ago.

 

WHERE IS IT MADE?


Sertodo Copper has workshops in Austin, Texas and Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico, a village located high in the Sierra Madres Occidental of Southwestern Mexico. The tradition of copper work in this region has been passed down through generations for over 1000 years.

 

HOW DO I CARE FOR IT?


nicole-rhea-wood-460-1.jpgWash Your New Pieces Before First Use: Warm soapy water and a soft sponge are great. DO NOT USE an abrasive or scouring pad on the exterior surface because it will scratch down the high polish finish to a matte surface. If you prefer a matte finish rather than a polished, scour away.

Towel Dry Your Equipment Completely After Washing! This will keep your shine shinier. The chemicals used to make your tap water potable will dry in little dark spots all over your mirror polished copper leaving it freckled with little patina specks. Don't worry, there is an immediate cure if this happens.

Polishing Your Copper: If your copper gets a patina finish and you want to bring back the original shine, it's as easy as a quick polish. We recommend using Wright's Copper Creme or Bar Keeper's Friend for great results. It's basically as easy as hand washing your pieces with relatively instant gratification. Be sure to completely rinse these polishing products from your goods because they will turn green if left on. 

 

WHY BUY HANDCRAFTED?


nicole-rhea-wood-514-1.jpg

When you buy handcrafted, you're purchasing something special. It's not just another product that rolled off the assembly line. It was crafted with love, and with care, with passion and with great skill. The time it takes to produce something is measured in hours - not minutes or seconds. Understanding and appreciating that is part of the experience of owning it. Here are some of the qualities about small batch artisan handcrafted goods that add to the joy of owning them:

Authenticity - Every artisan has a story. A story about how their life inspires their work and how their work inspires their life. We believe that knowing these stories enriches the experience of owning each piece. You begin to understand the love and the passion that goes into each piece. It becomes a conversation piece, a family heirloom, and a piece of artwork on your tabletop with a rich history to accompany it. You can learn more about our artisans here.

Character - Every piece is unique, and every piece has it’s own character: a flourish of color, or striking figure of the wood, an errant hammer strike or a slightly misshapen bowl. Each piece is filled with distinguishing characteristics and minor imperfections that remind you that your piece was made by a pair of human hands and your piece is truly one of a kind.

Sustainability - Goods made by hand use less energy to produce and are often made with reclaimed, repurposed, recycled or sustainably harvested resources.
