Artist Lawrence Kattah of Ghana hand-carves this image of a kpanlogo drummer from ebony wood. Kpanlogo is a recreational dance and music form from Ghana. It was first played by the Ga ethnic group, most of whom live in and around the capital city, Accra; but it is now performed and enjoyed throughout the country. The artist details the drum beautifully and captures the fluid gestures of the drummer.

Update (August, 2019)

My name is Lawrence Kattah, and for five years I have been a part of this prestigious company, NOVICA. As an artist, my major challenge has been marketing my products ,therefore when I had the opportunity to join NOVICA, I did not spare it any thought at all.

“My business has thrived a lot since I joined NOVICA, since I have had an avenue to advertise and sell my products. Today I have been able to expand my shop, and I employ 5 shop assistants, 4 males and 1 female. I'm also now capable of paying for my ward's fees, as compared to before when things were very difficult for me.

“The period in the year that I really make sales is the holiday season; a large number of my products are purchased during this season. I will encourage customers to keep purchasing my products in order for me to have the financial freedom to expand my new product base on the website.”

Original Artisan Story

“I am Lawrence Kattah, and I was born at Aburi in the eastern region of Ghana. I am considered a hardworking and trustworthy person. I create sculptures and musical instruments. Art is an innate gift, and out of passion I found myself in the art business. I learned this skill from my eldest brother. I have taught a couple of apprentices, and I also assist visual arts students with their practical works.

“My favorite thing about my art is the quality and uniqueness. I use sese wood, iron rod, and acrylic paints to produce my items, and they are easy to work with. The challenge is the difficulty in obtaining the raw materials, and also in the marketing of my items. I am inspired by the Almighty God with the designs I create.

“I am hoping to make it big in life, so that my family can enjoy the good life. I have plans to open workshops across the country, to create employment for the unemployed. My biggest dream is to become a well-known artist and establish an art school.”

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.
