    This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic. Its head slightly raised in search of a path, a golden gecko poses on the wall with vigilant patience. Detailed to high perfection, the gecko is crafted of iron with a unique process developed by artisan J. Blas. The result is an original wall ornament of rustic allure.

    The Story Behind the Art
     

     "Hello. My name is J. Blas. From the time I was small I have enjoyed arts and crafts. I loved to dig and prepare clay to make my own pieces and from that time on I began to experiment with ceramics. When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop because I hate to ask anyone for work – I feel shy and ashamed. Due to my lack of experience, I had to shut it down and went to work in other studios as well as in a ceramics museum, where I learned everything – from how to look for clay to crafting techniques.

    "Over time, I learned more and more and became aware of the critical stages that clay has, and where it is good to depend on other people to work it perfectly. And so I changed directions and began to work in wrought iron and blown glass. When things began to get better, I started to experiment with sheets of iron of different weights to give my works more movement.

    "Currently I again have my own workshop where we craft a variety of products, mostly decorative. We cut the metal sheets and hammer them into shape. Then we weld them and add the details. For a clean appearance, we submerge them in an acid bath to remove grease and carbon. After that, they are treated to rust before we paint them with a special, lead-free paint.

    "We are the first workshop in the area to utilize a fine blowtorch as a work tool and to give more originality to our products. Every piece created at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. We are always developing new designs and products."

      This product exceeded my expectations, it is well crafted and really cool looking. The web site says it has lead paint but the artist specifically states it doesn't--lead free products are very important to me and I was glad the artist took the time to keep his products safe.

      Saw similar geckos in Mexico. These are about the same price and much easier than getting it on a plane. Good quality decorative price,

      It is very cute and I like it but I think it is a little over priced. I would recommend if you really like this type of outdoor decor and willing to pay the price. Also, I would have prefered to have the ability to install with brick clips instead of screws.
