The El Salvador Series

Functional Tabletop Art Objects

Daniel Loomis Valenza was commissioned in 1968 to create a series of twenty tabletop objects that were both functional and aesthetically beautiful.  Known as the El Salvador Series, these sculptural yet useful works of art were manufactured by Industries Capri in San Salvador, El Salvador and included everyday tableware essentials such as trays, wine coolers, candle sticks, salt shakers, pepper mills, bowls and more.
