'My name is Asunta Pelaez. I have been dedicated to this art form since I was 17. At first my husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. The more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life. My tools consist of simple brushes, hammers, nails and glue. For designs and illustrations, I use India ink to produce the finer details and outlines. For colors I use tempera paints and gilt. I follow a meticulous process, carefully shaping the wood. For my mirrors, I cut the glass and outline my intended design. Next, I fill the outline with Cajamarca patterns. To finish, I glue the glass to the wood and apply a rich golden paint to the frame borders. This process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel proud of the works I create, and I look forward to sharing them with more people around the world.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted nature of this product will produce minor differences in design and sizing.
