I was born in Ayacucho province in 1975. Ayacucho is known for the subtle beauty of its traditional homes, for its breathtaking landscapes crowned with blue skies and surrounded by endless valleys.

My parents worked tirelessly to give us an education. My childhood took place in complicated times during a period of economic instability during the 1980s and '90s. My family was greatly affected by this and we bought as little as possible, making many sacrifices to face the crisis.

"Despite it all, I was a happy girl. I liked ceramics and was curious about how they were crafted. I was born in an artisan village, so how could I not love this art?

"I was captivated by the power to shape clay, and fascinated by colors and paints. I realized I had the talent and ability to develop my own designs and do so with care, love and passion. I think this is the key to quality. Being a detail-oriented person led me to become a perfectionist in my technique and, over time, I mastered this art and continue learning day by day.

"I especially like how clay is malleable and easy to mold. I'm inspired by traditional Peruvian pottery, and I like to craft churches and little bulls, and to depict our lovely landscapes.

"To start working on my own has required to perseverance. I've had to train a lot and not stop working on what I'm passionate about. It's taken effort and dedication to achieve my goals."

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.
