Albrecht Dürer marveled at the objects that Moctezuma had sent from Mexico to Charles V in 1520:

“Then, I saw the things being brought to the king of the new golden land… all sorts of wonderful things….and in all my life, I have not seen anything that made my heart so happy … “

Martha Pachón uses gold and silver as clay, she puts them on her porcelain pieces as a simple and ancient ornament. Her culture gives her work knowledge, almost wisdom, fusion of places, Europe and America, fusion of past and present. The skillful and respectful use of the material gives them shine or roughness, an alternation of nature and artifice, feathers, shells or scales of gold and silver, various geometries, volumes and colors. This distant wonder remains in our memory that not even Albrecht Dürer could express in words.
