Details

Enjoy the serenity just as peace-loving doves find tranquility in the sky's idyllic gardens. Andean artisan Asunta Pelaez creates 'Blue Doves' at her Lima, Peru workshop mastering the centuries-old reverse painted glass technique. Incorporating floral motifs, Pelaez paints her design on the reverse side of the pane of glass, which she then sets in the outer frame. For Pelaez, her artistic style and techniques have become her way of life as she seeks to dedicate her time to what satisfies her most.

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.

Job Creator

Job Creator

In addition to the artisans she employs full time, Asunta works with one temporary artisan — another NOVICA artisan who helps Asunta with the most physically demanding parts of her work because of her illness.

Enabling Education

Enabling Education

This artist is currently supporting and providing for the education of their children, grandchildren, or children in their community, whether it be at the primary, secondary, or university level.

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

Asunta's sales are critical to supporting herself, her elder husband and her workers along with their families. Her personal health situation makes each sale that much more important.
