THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Regina Aguilar
Country: Central America
"Since 1985, I have been fascinated by the wonder of creating an object and following its production process until completion. From the spark of the first idea to its final presentation in museums, galleries, shops, homes and international fairs.
"As an artist and designer living in Honduras, I have a wide palette of materials to use, from the exuberant materials that the Central American tropical rain forest offers all year round and the vast variety recycled materials that are discarded as waste.
"This natural richness combined with the talented hands of the many artisans who execute my ideas all make it possible to materialize and focus my creative force.
"The combination of artist and artisan is a win-win situation for both sides. I create, they craft, and we all help ourselves to achieve a better quality of life.""
