Story Behind the Art:

'My name is Asunta Pelaez. I have been dedicated to this art form since I was 17. At first my husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. The more I practiced, the more this craft won me over. Now I consider it a way of life. My tools are simple brushes, hammers, nails and glue. For designs and illustrations, I use India ink to produce the finer details and outlines. For colors I use tempera paints and gilt. I follow a meticulous process, carefully shaping the wood. For my mirrors, I cut the glass and outline my intended design. Next, I fill the outline with Cajamarca patterns. To finish, I glue the glass to the wood and apply a golden paint to the frame borders. This process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel proud of the works I create, and I look forward to sharing them with more people around the world.'

  • Lovely mirror!

    This is a nicely crafted mirror - the designs are painted on the reverse side of the pieces of glass. I find it perfect for a guest room, above a dresser, but it would also look good in a hall or other room. Great value for the money.
