Born in the Volta region of Ghana, Ralph Kwasi Agudze has always been interested in art. 'After finishing school, I worked as a weaver in a textile company from 1973 to 1995, when the company had to lay off some of its workers. I then decided to learn a trade of my own. I was so determined to make it, it took me just a few months to learn wood carving and I discovered a surprising natural ability,' he confides.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
