Jan Barboglio began sculpting accessories and furniture for her own home, after many years designing clothing with her sister. Her childhood, spent in north central Mexico, would prove to be fertile ground for inspiration, and every object created by her would carry with it the rich history and romance of old Mexico. Jan Barboglio's original iron designs led the way for her current and extensive home accessories line. The Jan Barboglio Collection has since flourished into crosses and crowns, fleur-de-lis and scrolls, wildflowers and roses, guardian angels and symbolic bleeding hearts.
The Mariachi Box derives its unique texture from the artist hammering the iron before making the box. The mariachi, so prominently displayed on the lid, is cast from a wax mold. Inside, a leather insert serves to keep the contents safe.
