Jose Pablo Angulo
“I have the joy of having been born in a country rich in nature, and full of beauty in its flora and fauna.
“Since I was very small I was attracted by items made by hand. It was once when experimenting that I managed to make some pieces. At first it cost me a lot, but with time I was gaining experience. All this was born as a dream, and seeing it achieved now fills me with great satisfaction. I work on every piece with a lot of dedication.
“Every day is a wonderful experience; an opportunity to learn something new and be able to translate it into my pieces. My product does not use precious stones; we use real wings of butterflies that have natural pigments and color patterns that make each piece unique.
“This craft provides extra income to families in rural areas which, in turn, helps to conserve forests, as it is a sustainable and environmentally friendly activity. I want to bring people closer to nature through art, with unique pieces that they can use every day and can see in them the beauties that God gives us through nature. By incorporating butterfly wings in art, I aim to educate people around the world about Costa Rican biodiversity.”
