Salomon's story

Salomon is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in handmade ceramic masks. He would like to invest in the purchase of ceramic and pigments, as well as to pay artisans' wages.

Salomon has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:

"I am a self-taught artist, dedicating myself to ceramics since my youth. I specialize in masks influenced by the Vicus, Moche, and Nazca cultures. I focus largely on the mix of form and color: despite a lack of formal training, I have created a unique, personal style. I hope to improve my work with each passing day, and achieve a style that is gratifying for me and that will resonate in people's hearts and minds."

"I would like to express my profound gratitude to all of you for funding this microcredit. Thanks to these funds I'll be able to build up my stock and increase sales. Thank you very much."
