Antonio Castillo as a young man
working at repousse.

The memorial service honoring Antonio Castillo is planned for November the 2nd at 1:00 p.m. to take place in Santa Prisca in Taxco. A chalice will be donated to the church in Don Antonio's name that has been designed by Gustavo Martinez, a leader in the Taxco community, and created by Roman Estrada, a respected silversmith who worked for Los Castillo. The names of those who have donated money towards the chalice will be recorded on the side beneath the base of the chalice.

If you would like more information regarding the service, or  donating  towards the chalice, please email modernsilver@aol.com
