Jose Luis Curcio is a writer, poet and artisan. Forced to leave Uruguay after the coup d'etat in 1973, he eventually settled in Guatemala. 'My motto is woodcarving to restore the soul and rescue the ecology. I decided to dedicate myself to arts, crafts and gastronomy. Woodworking is awesome -- it's malleable, sensitive, reusable, recyclable and seemingly transformed by alchemy. What I like is that it is ecological.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
