My name is Milton Nolverto Rios Patricio. I was born in 1982 in Lima. The summers are short, crisp, arid, and partially cloudy, while the winters are cold, dry, and cloudy.

I'm a man who is always finding with new ideas to create something that I haven't made before. I share my knowledge without egotism because feedback is very important to me.

"Since having children, I have become a different man. I dedicate my life to my children and my family. If I could turn back time, l'd return to that moment when I first had my children.

"I never thought that I would create glass sculpture. Little animal sculptures always caught my attention. I imagined a thousand things, which intrigued me, until one day I saw my brother making a sculpture. I was very surprised. From then on I never stopped practicing and perfecting my art, bringing it to levels that I didn’t even think I could achieve.

"I have gone through some very difficult times with my wife, two small children, and one newborn. I had no idea how to give them everything they needed. I found some independent work. I started from scratch, knocking on doors, looking for any type of opportunities and jobs to promote my glass art.

"I'm a very creative and curious man, and I'm always thinking of all the sculptures that I could make using my techniques. I am self-taught and, with the help of technology, I can navigate and learn from many sources around the world.

"This technique requires a lot of patience, practice, perseverance, desire, and passion, which are qualities I apply to this day. Sometimes, the results are very frustrating but, when the results are optimal, it is very beautiful and compensates for all of the struggle.

"What I love the most about my art is the infinity of images I can make. This constantly results in new challenges, so that I never fall into a routine. My inspiration comes from everything that surrounds me, including the most important things in the universe — my three small children. They are my strength and my drive; they inspire my career and make me the man that I am. They fill me with energy and strength to get up every morning and work on my craft.

"Beginning to work on my own was crazy, especially since I had three small children that totally depended on me but, with strength and desire, we were able to get ahead little by little. I am very grateful for very important window to promote my art.

"My plans for the future are, without a doubt, to continue spreading and promoting my art that I love so much, showing my small children that they can do anything they want in life, and that they also have to follow their dreams and grab hold of them. I have faith in seeing them grow up happy so that they can achieve their dreams."

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.
