"Work of art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This bowl is larger than I thought and it is a work of art unto itself. I would not put anything rough in it because then you would not see the beauty of the lines in the material. It is well carved and smooth, worthy of an honored place. It is so much more than a catch all...

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

This artist is currently confronting a major life challenge.

Sierra Family has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2500 and the most recent for $3800. Proceeds were used to purchase marble and onyx in bulk for her chess sets.

Odette has left a profound impact in her community and has successfully tripled the growth of her workshop from her first six months at NOVICA.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Odette has provided work for incredible people to aid in creating the art in her workshop.

Odette learned her craft from community members in her home town.
