Artisan Information

Raphat Asigbey

My name is Raphat Asigbey and I am a woodcarver. I was born in the Volta region of Ghana in 1981. My friends describe me as respectful, calm and hardworking. I became interested in this craft when I completed high school and was unable to further my education.

I was taught by Daniel Quarcoo, a Novica-featured artisan. Starting out on my own was very difficult when I didn't have enough money to complete orders. I went through a hard time when I didn't receive enough work to support my family. I then worked for an exporter for a while, and later began participating in exhibitions.

"To master this art, I practiced crafting more unique designs.

"My favorite pieces are the Ashanti stools, or throne ottomans, which I craft with my own designs. My assistants now help me sand down the carvings and help with the finishing. I find it most challenging when depicting animals. My creative inspiration comes from dreams and the Bible.

"I hope to one day become a recognized artist worldwide and be able to help the poor in my community."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
