"We are continuing a family tradition that started more than 40 years ago, and we now specialize in pieces made from pure silica sand glass."
The artistry of Gabriel and Rodolfo Lio Jaramillo has been featured in Depth magazine.
"My father opened this workshop in the 1960's. He had previously worked in the first hand-blown glass factory in the area as well as an internationally known glass workshop. It was through this experience that he mastered his craft and gained the knowledge to start his own factory.
"When we were young we worked with our father during school vacations, helping him to create glass works and in the process learning about the intricacies of silica sand and mixing colors. We are continuing a family tradition that started more than 40 years ago, and we now specialize in etched pieces made from pure silica sand glass. Everything we do is completely handmade.
"Our process requires sixteen ingredients: pieces of recycled glass, silica sand, stabilizers, flux and metallic oxide colors are melted and mixed using clay pots. The mixture is melted at a temperature of between 1400°C and 1500°C (2550°F - 2730°F). After cooling to a temperature of 1200°C (2190°F), a piece is soft enough to be worked. From three pieces of glass one piece is made, as this is the easiest manner to manipulate this highly delicate material. When the scrupulous procedure of hand-blowing the glass is completed, the semi-finished piece is put in a kiln and fired at temperatures between 150°C and 800°C (300°F - 1,470°F) for twelve hours so it will dry slowly and evenly. The following day the pieces are selected for quality and their unique aspects."
I love the uniqueness of these artists. The design and originality is especially eye catching. I love my glass face.
I absolutely love the artistry of the masks. Thet are much more than a candleholder. I have returned to puchase another to add to my home. Thank you for the careful packaging and prompt shipping.

Just got my bueatiful glasses, with very fast international shipping and they were incredibly well packed. I am so pleased. I hope that the Jaramillos will be selling the engraved clear glass goblets pictured in the bio. Thank you again so much.

This primal yet modern piece gives my livingroom that tribal abstract feel that I was looking for. It goes perfect with the rest of my art collection. If Gabriel and Rodolfo should offer larger pieces via Novica, I'll be first in line. Thanks a million!

Awesome!!!!! Before I found Novica I had purchased this fine art elsewhere. I have a wall only of these faces and plan to add more. I hope you add more colors to the webiste. I have some that I have not seen on here yet. I have at least 6 to the collection so far. I hope to see more of your artwork.

Just recieved my Blue Mask today. Fabulous Piece. Excellent packaging. Thank you so much for sharing you work. Peace
The beautiful and expressive Spirit of The Lake mask is a wonderful addition to my collection. It was very well packed and protected and delivery was lightning fast, the level of service is nothing short of exemplary! The overall experience has been so positive, I have permanently bookmarked NOVICA as a favorite online retailer and resource of contemporary art.
We have a total of about 24 different colored and shaped glass masks. I last purchased the multi colored mask ""Rainbow of Peace"" and it is spectacular. You are very blessed to be so talented. Thank you.
I was so thrilled with the glass mask I received that I ordered another as a gift. The mask is a striking piece of art. I would love to see more products by these gentlemen. Thank you.

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.
Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.
Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.
