Details

A deep crimson field blooms with the subtle movements of blue and white flowers, their scalloped outlines bordered in gilded splendor. The work requires intense patience, as Asunta Pelaez executes the composition on the reverse side of glass panes. Reflecting the artistic traditions of Cajamarca, Peru, this piece offers a luminous accent to any décor.

This is beautiful and arrived in perfect condition. It really is an outstanding work of art and I am thrilled every time I look at it. The colors and details are lovely and the slightly raised section circling the mirror adds dimension.

This mirror is very similar to one my mother had hanging in our house. This particular one will be a wedding gift for a young woman who is discovering her Peruvian past. Que lindo!

"A True Treasure"

Such beauty and workmanship. I bought this to put a College Graduation Check in. When the check is spent my granddaughter will have a lovely keepsake. She fell in love with the box and is a lover of butterflies. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work of art.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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