Diego Mendoza reclaims roots from the granadillo tree, letting the wood itself dictate the shape of two ladles. The wood's grain enhances each ladle and the irregular forms seem shaped by the 'xocomil' winds that blow across Lake Atitlan.

Story Behind the Art:
Diego Mendoza says, 'What I enjoy the most about my work is also my biggest challenge, creating new designs. Wood is a noble element, totally transformable, that gives you a lot if you know how to work it, treat it and take care of it. I remember with much gratefulness a companion in the first workshop where I worked. He took a lot of time to teach me things I never imagined possible to do with my hands. Now I spend some of my time teaching the young people who work with me.'
