Celebrating the Flora and Fauna of the Mediterranean
Thompson Traders, makers of copper vessels and accessories for kitchens, baths, boutique hotels and resorts will introduce two beautifully hand-crafted bath sinks at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 20-22, 2015. Expertly made in the Santa Clara del Cobre region of Mexico, these unusual pieces were inspired by the flora and fauna of the Mediterranean.
The gracefully nested petals of the Fiore – “flower” in Italian – bring the beauty of a Portofino garden in bloom to the bath. Handcrafted from pure copper, the basin, with its gold finish, is especially suited to that very special, one-of-a-kind powder room or glamorous master bath.
The Ibiza takes its inspiration from the Mediterranean Island of the same name, where spirited fishing journeys are a favorite pastime. This intricate, hand-hammered vessel captures the form of a fish in motion. Sure to be a conversation piece in any room, it’s perfectly suited for the bar, library, or powder. Finished in satin gold, the Ibiza is handmade of pure copper.
These unique sinks feature an equally unique finish of antique satin gold. The finish is formulated to inhibit the normal patina that would normally occur on untreated, natural copper allowing the basins to retain their original integrity.
Alejandra Thompson, the founder and creative director of Thompson Traders, was born and raised in the world-renowned copper-crafting region of Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico, where generations of artisans have used time-honored, metal crafting techniques for centuries. Alejandra’s deeply rooted connection to her homeland serves as a driving creative force in her designs, which elevate utilitarian home fixtures to surprisingly affordable functional works of art.
