"Taxco, with its perfect climate and picturesque aspect
was, in the fifties, the scene of a Robert Mitchum film
for years it was something of an art crowd rest spot.
In the sixties, Tecalpulco’s tin mirrors and frames
sold through tourist stores in Taxco.
The Tecalpulco craftsmen were also making
a flexible fish ornament overlaid in abalone shell.
The larger fishes had a heavy duty mouth fashioned for bottleopener.
The fish were built on tin sheet salvaged from tin cans.
The artisan would work the shell material
on the edge of a carborundum wheel
mounted on a small bench motor
tied to a lard can filled with cement,
gluing on the abalone segments one by one
as she or he had shaped it."
