Andean artisan Antonio Rojas lives his life amid wood. 'I'd describe my work as life itself, and my existence together with it,' he says. 'When I was only 17, I created my first piece and it was an immense satisfaction. Art guides my hands in that moment of pleasure as I begin a design. My pieces are inspired by the olden times and reflect the style of vintage pieces. They transmit my love for life and for nature -- its flowers, birds and all the rich flora and fauna of our country.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
