Description

Details:
Waves of jade and sapphire seem to ebb and flow in the light, evoking the ever-changing colors of the sea. Created by artisans from Vidri Arte, this exquisite cross is crafted entirely by hand. First the wrought iron frame is shaped. Bits of colored glass are mounted on a clear glass base and the spaces are filled with a special paste.

Because each piece is individually crafted, each is absolutely unique. The motifs could differ slightly from those pictured and the size could vary by as much as +/- 2 cm.

Story behind the art :W have hired deaf people, taught them a trade and we pay them a salary. They receive all the perquisites required by law, they participate in the system of socialized medicine for working people (IMSS) and they can earn weekly bonuses and prizes. We assist them with their audiometric exams and help them acquire hearing aids. We also give jobs to pregnant women from the 'Vida y Familia A.C.' shelter. These are people who for a number of reasons - rape, abandonment, family violence, etc. - are living at the shelter, and it is impossible for them to find a job to save money for when the baby is born. We are also working hand in hand with the state's Family Development Agency (DIF), that aids people with different kinds of handicaps. The final objective is a simple one - to be happy.Since we were children we learned certain beliefs and a scale of values. We've also had experiences that showed us the extreme reality some people face. This made us stop and realize how our friends graduate from college programmed to find the best possible job, the best position in a prestigious company. But, after searching our own hearts, after questioning our reason for living, we asked what we could do and where our acts would take us. Happiness? Fulfillment? I think everyone asks him or herself these questions, but the difference is this - do we go with the flow? Or de we try to achieve congruence and coherence in our lives? We want our endeavor to be an innovator. We want to help those less fortunate by contributing to their personal success and help them generate and administer economic resources. To achieve this, Vidri Arte hopes to create a new business philosophy by demonstrating that this is a viable style of life, a way to be happy. Our slogan is 'Light Through Glass.' Its meaning is twofold. First, when light passes through glass, it makes the product look more beautiful. Secondly, through our work in glass, we want to offer light and hope to others. Becoming part of Novica's beautiful mission has been a great experience for us, especially getting to know the people that make up Novica's team. They all have a warm sense of humanness. Novica and its team make you feel you're not alone. Novica encourages us to do what we love. This is reflected in our sales, which are now constant, allowing us to work year-round. We have been receiving so many orders that we have been able to employ assistant artisans, and we have chosen to employ artisans with physical disabilities, so they may have an opportunity to contribute to their family's income, and become financially independent. Aside from the economic aspects, Novica has enabled us to promote our little-known process of glasswork. Novica offers us a place from which we can reach people who are searching for something authentic, something that is deeply ingrained in our Mexican heritage.
