Artisan Information

Victor Dushie

“My name is Victor Dushie and I was born in Accra. I grew up in a community of wood carvers and designers, which naturally made me interested in it. I learned from Sasu Kanu, who worked closely with me, teaching by example and helping me practice sanding my creations.

“During this time, I learned to master the craft after a lot of practical experience. I find that sanding down the wood has been the main challenge of this art. After completing my training, I also taught two others who actively use their skills.

“My creations are made from sese wood, which is readily available in my local markets. I am inspired by the Bible as well as other artists. My favorite part about this craft is designing.

“My family works alongside me, helping me sand down my creations before I put the finishing touches on them.”

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.
