Meet the Artist

Artfully crafted by Nayeli Vasquez from Mexico.

 

Meet the Artist

Nayeli Vasquez

"What I enjoy the most is being able to express many things. I can make something unique and convey everything I want to say without words, through clay."

"I am a woman with hope, dreams and plans. I think and think about things twice. I contextualize and de-contextualize to... describe who I am and I always sum it up in two words: simple and hardworking.

"I'm very sensitive and love to smile. I'm always smiling because I believe that smiles are a state of the soul.

"I was born in Oaxaca and am one of six children. It was difficult for my parents to give us a good education, but they taught us how to work with clay. Since I was young, I've had to work and sell my ceramics to pay for school. As I look back, I understand that this made me practice my craft and develop my ability. Now, my figurines have even won awards at the state and national level.

"In 2006, I won the first place in a state-sponsored contest for a miniature nativity scene that measured only two centimeters. It was the first contest I'd participated in, and winning motivated me to keep on working and competing.

β€œIn Mexico City, I participated in a Mexican nativity contest and then another in Oaxaca, also with a miniature nativity scene.

"I love creating miniatures because they're detailed and require more time, but I enjoy making them. Now, I teach my children this beautiful craft so it isn't lost and will continue on from generation to generation, just as I learned.

"Practice, practice and practice is the only way to gain mastery. I have to do and undo because, as my father said, 'If it doesn't come out the way you want, undo it and try again.' Practice makes perfect because this work is more hands on than theoretical. In the end, our work is what recommends us.

"I currently have a workshop where I craft clay figurines. I enjoy showing my work and it makes me smile. I'm always creating new designs and try to preserve the Mexican traditions that make up my history.

"Artists and artisans work with the deepest part of our existence β€” feelings. I love that my work recognizes and expresses women's strength. I think women have the fortitude to accomplish many things. For example, I'm a mother and homemaker. I go everywhere and refuse to let adversity hold me back.

"I believe that not remaining static is the most revolutionary way we can empower ourselves as women.

"When people buy one of my figurines, without my telling them what it represents, they begin imagining its meaning out loud. They share all kinds of ideas, then look to me to confirm their thoughts. I listen to and agree because this is what life is like β€” things are shaped and transformed depending on who sees, experiences and touches them.

"I've always enjoyed creating elaborate pieces and familiar shapes with novel textures. I prefer carving out clay instead of building up the forms, and often scratch or cut the surfaces to create texture. Sometimes, I like to add colors to the red clay.

"What I enjoy the most is being able to express many things. I can make something unique and convey everything I want to say without words, through clay. It helps me create a new way to communicate.

"We buy our clay from people in a neighboring town and then prepare it ourselves. All of my figurines are crafted by hand from start to finish. I use clay, colored earth, a thorn, jar lids, used pens and even stones. "

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.

Triple 'Win' Pricing

UNICEF Market offers triple win pricing, where YOU the consumer, Children from around the world, and Artisans all benefit.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.

You can learn more about UNICEF's work, on About UNICEF.

WIN # 3 Artisans Profit!
