The artistry of Dionisio Rojas Gutierrez has been featured in the Cincinnati Inquirer.

Dionisio Rojas Gutierrez is an artisan from the Andes mountains of southern Peru. He has worked since the age of ten with his cousins, who are also ceramics artists, and his aunt who had an art store in his hometown. Rojas sold his ceramic artwork locally as a teenager and won art contests at local, state, and national levels as his skills progressed. Alongside his lovely wife, he fully dedicates himself to his ceramic artwork, in particular churches, lamps, animals, and musicians.

He forms the vases on the potter's wheel, while figurines are shaped by hand or in a hand-made mold. The pieces are fired it at a temperature of 900º C (1,652º F). When they have cooled, Rojas paints the motifs and protects each piece with a coat of varnish.

This Nativity brings memories of my visits to Machu Picchu. Its so pretty...such a beautiful work of art. Even the back of the piece shows the terracing of Mach Picchu. Love this.

"A perfect big blue Pucara Bull!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

First, this Pucara Bull looks huge; so much bigger and taller than I expected. He is very, very nicely painted in a lovely color of blue and I really will enjoy owning a fabled Pucara Bull. I especially like the manner in which Mr. Rojas has painted it. So many of the other Pucara Bulls are over-painted and garish. This Bull is perfect, very big and dignified. Well done Mr. Rojas, and thank you.

"Stunning nativity."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Im a collector and have other pieces from Dionisio. This one I had to wait and be informed that it was available again. Last year I took one or two days to decide, and it was gone immediately. This is why when I was notified it was again available I did not hesitated and bought it. It is impressive. The amount of work, creativity and art in this nativity only speaks of Dionisios passion to create what is beautiful and artistic. thank You!!!! I will surely keep on buying from this artist again.

"A Cherished Heirloom"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Andean Church Nativity arrived in England today. It is absolutely superb. The craftsmanship is wonderful and the whole scene is created with such skill and sensitivity. The packaging was outstanding; I was a little worried unwrapping the Nativity considering the distance it had travelled. It was perfect, every figure was carefully wrapped and protected, even down to the little bell. Thank you so much for the beautiful sculpture; I will treasure it always.
