"I dream of the day our products are recognized in faraway lands, and we won't stop until that day arrives."
Born in the province of Lambayeque on February 1, 1971, Luis Seclen learned his craft from his uncle Jorge. They specialize in ornamental glass and crystal, with silver or gold applications. Proud of his country's traditions, Luis prefers to work on Andean and pre-Hispanic themes.
Luis transforms glass pipettes into llamas or alpacas, as well as admirable nativity scenes through which he honors his religious beliefs. "I've also taken courses on serigraph and marketing, which I apply to the promotion of our work. For example, I developed the workshop's logo," says Luis with pride.
His figurines are renowned for the unique way in which he decorates each one. "My little daughter Luciana Micaela is the one who inspires me!" confides the proud papa.
"Ours is mainly a family-run workshop, but there are also eight more artisans working with us. Uncle Jorge continues to be the teacher, and now he is training the family's younger generation.
"My biggest challenge is to ensure the financial stability of our workshop for this work accounts for the family's income and sustenance. I dream of the day our products are recognized in faraway lands, and we won't stop until that day arrives. I hope people will appreciate the quality of our work, its sheen, and the silver and gold tracery."
