Artisan: Asunta Pelaez

Artisan Asunta Pelaez

"I have been dedicated to this art form since I was 17 years old. At first my I husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. I realized that the more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering me tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life.

"I create a variety of beautiful mirrors, coasters, boxes and trays. My tools consist of simple brushes, hammers, nails and glue. For the designs and illustrations, I use India ink to produce the finer details and outlines. Finally for colors I use tempera paints and gilt.

"I follow a meticulous process, carefully shaping the wood to give it a pleasing form. Later, for my mirrors, I cut the glass and outline my intended design. Next, I fill the outline with beautiful Cajamarca patterns. To finish, I glue the glass to the wood and apply a rich golden paint to the borders of the frame. This whole 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 very proud of the works that I create, and I look forward to sharing them with more and more people around the world."

The work of Asunta Pelaez has been featured in Faith and Family magazine.
