Jesus's story

Jesus is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in metal art. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials, including sheet metal, paint, and metal profiles.

Jesus has been selling through NOVICA since 2003, working under the artistic name "J. Blas". This is his story:

"When I was 17, I started my own ceramic workshop. But I changed directions and began to work in wrought iron and blown glass. I experimented with sheets of iron to give my works more movement. We cut the metal sheets, hammer them into shape and weld them before treating them against rust. Every piece created at my workshop goes hand in hand with originality, design and quality. We are always developing new designs and products.

For us artisans, this microcredit represents a very important source of support. It allows us to improve our working conditions and motivates us to continue working every day to improve our craft. Thank you!"
