About Sigi Pineda:
Sigi Pineda, now in his early 70's, may be one of the last of the great historic artisans of Taxco still producing jewelry and new designs. He developed his own style in the early 1950's, approaching a more international flavor to his work than his contemporaries and predecessors who were exploring symbolic Mexican themes. Sigi's version of organic modernism was inspirational in developing and establishing a new design sensibility in Taxco, Mexican modernism, adding to the established Mexican art vocabulary.
