In designing the Copper Canyon Collection, Lisa Smith has been inspired by her many trips to the canyons of the southwest. These canyons are carved from water and wind. The coppery sand and desert flora are referenced by the copper and verdigris on the ripples and ridges of the salt and pepper shakers. opper Canyon pieces are made of our signature Nambé Alloy coated with copper for heirloom-quality durability. A clear protective coating makes upkeep as simple as wiping with a damp or soapy cloth and eliminates the need for polishing.
