Tane and Maestro Felguérez Highlight Excellence in Mexican Craftsmanship
Every year since 1974, the outstanding silversmiths at Tane, a luxury jeweler in Mexico, produce a single piece of unique artwork that is born out of a collaborative partnership with a renowned artist. This year, Tane partnered with Maestro Manuel Felguérez, a prominent Mexican abstract artist known for his influential role in the Generación de la Ruptura which broke away from the muralist movement championed by Diego Rivera during the mid 20th Century.
This year’s piece, an abstract design conceptualized by Maestro Felguérez and executed by the talented Tane silversmiths, features individual impeccably crafted pieces of pure silver arranged into a one-of-a-kind 45 centimeter composition that is both narrow and vertical.
To honor the launch of this year’s collaboration, Tane hosted an intimate lunch for 45 guests prepared by chef Jorge Vallejos at Quintonil (#12 of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants) in Mexico City. While finding their seats, guests enjoyed a craft cocktail featuring Casa Dragones Blanco aptly named, Agua de Quintonil before the meal’s first course was served. The afternoon’s marquee entree was a colorful dish of Escamoles paired with Casa Dragones Joven, and lead Maestro Felguérez to remark that “this is a tequila that you just have to drink with real connoisseurs,” before guests parted ways after lunch.
For years, Tane has been maintained its reputation for “silversmith work that is completely devoted to the pursuit of perfection,” – a declaration that was most certainly solidified through this year’s collaboration with Maestro Felguérez.
