Details

Delicate, blossoming foliage twists and coils its way across the smooth, alluring surface of this Cajamarca-style tray by Asunta Pelaez. In a process demanding incredible patience and attention to detail, Pelaez first shapes the wood and cuts the glass to size. She traces the pattern in India ink and paints the detailed designs. Finally, she glues the glass to the wood and applies golden paint to the borders of the piece. The entire process can take seven days or more.

"I love this beautiful tray!"

This Royal Blue Garden is the first of these trays I ordered, for myself, and it was so beautiful I had to get more for gifts! The painting is masterfully done and the design is simply beautiful! The tray comes extremely well packed in lots of paper and sturdy boxes. My tray arrived in a very timely fashion and completely safe and sound. I could not be happier with this purchase. Thank you, Asunta Pelaez for such beauty and creativity.

Confronting Adversity

Confronting Adversity

In 2016, Asunta was diagnosed with a serious throat disease. She has no health insurance and uses her earnings from NOVICA to fund her treatments. She also has a husband and her workers who depend on her. Through all this, she has shown such perseverance and strength and continues to work hard and balance her responsibilities.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Asunta uses the traditional Peruvian technique of reverse-painted glass. Brought to Peru during the colonial period, every detail is done by hand, requiring great skill and patience. She teaches the technique to others through her workshop and hopes they will continue to practice and pass down the traditional technique to keep it alive for future generations.

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Asunta's sales have increased more than threefold since she joined Novica. When Asunta first started out, she had a small workshop with two part-time assistants. Now she is able to rent a larger space close to her home and provide work for more people.

Microcredit Financing

Microcredit Financing

Asunta Pelaez has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1800 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood, paint and lacquer for production.
