The son of artisans who crafted hats from alpaca wool, Apolonio Alejandro Roque was born on February 25. The family moved to the capital when he was eight, and his older brother found work painting glass, a craft he taught Apolonio when the younger of the siblings was only ten. He feels happy when working and the hours slip away unnoticed, as he becomes absorbed in colors and forms. 'I've never thought of doing anything else, not even when things were very bad,' he confides.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
