Transforming a piece of wood into a personage that comes to life little by little is a unique experience. It is very gratifying.

I'm Johnny Chamba and I was born in Piura on April 20, 1974. I lived with my grandmother in the village of Paraiso until I was 17, and I thank God she is still alive. Then I enlisted in the army for a few years to serve my country.

My childhood with Grandmother was wonderful but also challenging. Because our village was so far off the beaten track, I had no opportunities for development.

Life has given me a treasure chest of surprises — much happiness, some sorrow and the heartbreak of not having my real mother with me. But despite all the adversities we find along the way, I made it to Lima and started helping out in a carpentry workshop. I began by sanding artisan carvings, then I discovered I could create them, too. My interest in woodcraft grew until I was able to develop a figure from a thick branch.

Today, I have a small workshop in my home, equipped with basic tools such as chisels, knives, nails and sandpaper. I work together with my brother. We prefer cedar, although it's a very hard wood and difficult to carve. Our inspiration comes from our lives, everything that surrounds us, and what is native to our village.

We'd like you to become acquainted with our art, our work, our dedication to each sculpture we make and every piece of wood we carve. We thank God for the opportunity we have to make this possible. Our works are crafted with all the affection possible so that we can share a little bit of ourselves with you.

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.
