Each Dos Armadillos Tequila bottle evokes the artistic techniques and ancestral spirit of Mexico’s rich heritage. It is a singular piece of art created from recyclable and environmentally friendly materials. From colored glass, natural clay, colored clay, and silver varieties – each bottle is hand-crafted by Mexican artisans. That equates to no two bottles ever being the same.
Carlos Bustos hails from San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, and is the fourth generation of his family dedicated to the art of sculpture.
He has practiced the art of molding clay since childhood, studied at and graduated from the School of Visual Arts at the University of Guadalajara, and to date has created more than 260 monumental sculptures throughout Mexico.
In addition to his talents as a sculptor, he is know for restoring works of art in various media, and is licensed in restoration by the INAH (National Institute of Anthropology and History).
Bustos primarily works with clay, high and low fire ceramics,
“desfrujulado” clay (in a liquid state), lost wax bronze casting,
silicon bronze, silver, resin, fiberglass, and scrap materials.
He is an ardent promoter of eco-friendly materials and green
techniques. He has participated in numerous fairs and exhibitions throughout his career, and his work has been
repeatedly awarded and recognized.
