Copper Doors

Category: Beautiful Doors,Road TripsLori @ 12:27 pm Comments (5)

It’s been a while since I shared photos from a road trip (does anyone remember Chip Falcon’s Road Trip?), but the kids are on spring break so we took a spontaneous trip to Michoacan, Mexico from our home base in the state of Guanajuato.  It was only about a 3 1/2-hour drive, but the change in landscape from the desert highlands to the volcanic mountains, fertile fields, and wetlands of Michoacan was striking.

We visited Santa Clara del Cobre, a town known for it’s amazing copper work.  I didn’t find a lot of copper doors, but the pair below is on the entrance to the Museo del Cobre.  The doors are wood, with small copper overlays attached which look like they were done by various artisans.  The wood frame is covered with copper as well.
