'I'm Jose Manuel Garcia Reyes, and I've been close to arts and crafts all my life as my father was a tin craftsman from the time he was 15 years old. I started helping him at a young age, and when I was 22, Mexico's economic crisis forced me to drop out of college. I decided to work in handicrafts myself. I remember my first designs were tin Christmas tree ornaments, painted by hand. I sold them to a client my father had in Mexico City.'
