José Cruz

A video teaser on the Mexican maestro of glass engraving

by Gregory Stefano

On a recent visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, we had the privilege of meeting José Cruz Guillén Peña, one of the few remaining (and quite possibly the best living) master craftsmen of the “Pepita” method of glass engraving. Enjoy this peek into how Cruz carves beautiful designs using a stone wheel, and check back for a full video detailing the artisan’s work with tequila brand Casa Dragones.
