Héctor Aguilar (Mexican)

Also known as:  Hector Aguilar

Biography:
Héctor Aguilar became acquainted with William Spratling and the Taxco silver renaissance as a guide bringing tourists to Taller de Las Delicias from his native Mexico City. It was on one of his many visits to Taxco that he met his wife, Louis Cartwright, and together they settled in Taxco in 1937 where Aguilar became Spratlings shop manager. Two years later at Louis’ prodding and with the financial backing of friends, he purchased Casa Borda, the imposing 18th century Colonial residence in the center of town, previously owned by Don José de la Borda who made his fortune through the local silver mining industry. Aguilar established his taller at La Borda creating a new means of providing even more economic possibilities for residents of Taxco through the silver industy. At its height there were over three hundred employees at Taller Borda. Out of their vast production came Aguilar’s jewelry designs, which display his unique interpretation of pre-Columbian motifs focusing on the manipulation of line within simple compositions of stylized animals and geometric forms.
