The Finishing Touches for Zinc Embossing

Went to the client’s new home. Tomorrow is their move-in day. The home is a beautiful jewel with views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains through giant windows on one side and the Jemez Mountains on the other. True artisans crafted amazing touches to this home. Organic forged balustrades and touches were done by local blacksmith, Francis Nowicki.

One of the last items for the kitchen was an appliance garage. Diego created another design that tied in other embossed zinc touches throughout the kitchen.

  1. Hi Diego, I love your zinc embossing, it’s truly amazing. I am a friend of Indira. She shared your backsplash on Facebook. It would be wonderful if you gave classes on how do that embossing. You could videotape your classes, and I would buy them. I’ve become interested in metal work, and live far from Taos. I am in Joshua Tree California. Can you suggest anything? This area is becoming very artist conscious, maybe you know someone nearby? Thanks so much for your attention. You’re obviously talented like your dad. I have some of his paintings and am a great fan.
