Wayan's story

Wayan is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in wood sculptures. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and bring on additional carvers at his workshop. Wayan has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:

Wayan's father began teaching him to sculpt when he was a boy. "Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation," he says. "After I finished school, I studied further because I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings."'

"Thank you for this microcredit loan. It will help me to buy the wood and other materials I need to craft my pieces."
