"My two keys for success are passion and excellence. I work with all of my heart to give my son a better education, improve our workshop and give my neighbors work."

"I became interested in ceramics a long time ago. It was such a big interest that I learned on my own because I didn't... have money to pay for classes.

"I'm a simple, noble and solitary person. I'm a single dad, and that makes me feel very proud.

"I've had difficult and sad moments. The one that has affected me the most has been losing my marriage. My wife left me, and afterward, she took my children. I'm sincerely thankful because the youngest son stayed with me. He's the reason I’ve wanted to achieve the goals we've set for ourselves.

"While I was learning, I still hadn't mastered sculpting the clay when a woman asked me to make ceramic portraits of her children. I was very happy to do it. It was one of my first orders. After finishing and delivering them to her, she couldn't stop laughing. They turned out terribly! They didn't even look like her children. It was a very funny moment that reminds me how you need a sense a humor and that, while work can be serious, you have to have fun.

"I like creating birds and other animals. If I'd had the chance to study, I would've liked to focus on birds and other species. I'm very drawn to their movements, their colors, their courtship and how they defend their territory. I'm interested in creating birds through ceramics — to show nature's beauty and how amazing art can be.

"To master the techniques of molding and firing, I had to study a lot. I practiced by myself, in my room. To learn about birds and other animals, I watched a lot of programs and documentaries, and I looked at magazines and books. It's difficult to create animals, since you have to try to make them look like the real ones in shape and color. I had to learn how to paint by experimenting because I didn't take any formal classes. Then, I had to learn to lose the fear and embarrassment of offering my creations in the market.

"Now, I have some clients and am able to sell my pieces. But it's not very easy because when people don't recognize artisans' work and buy it, the artisan starves.

"I work alone and, in my free time, I teach my son a bit because he's interested in my art. I dream about making my workshop bigger and giving other people work. With God's help, I dream of giving my son everything he wants and needs to get ahead. My parents were very poor and everything was limited. I dream of helping other people, too.

"My two keys for success are passion and excellence. I work with all of my heart to give my son a better education, improve our workshop and give my neighbors work."

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
