Project Description

Jorge & Susana

A GENTLE FAMILY CARVING THEIR FUTURE IN THE HUAMANGA STONE.

Our story

Jorge was born in Ayacucho; he is 41 years old and is married to Susana. He lives in Ayacucho where he grows his 4 children: Stefany (21), Christian (19), Dayane (3) and James (2).

Jorge learnt this art from his master and Susana learnt from Jorge. He is a master in molding the Huamanga stone, using few tools (a stick and a stone cutter) he can mold almost everything and with the help of Susana, who is in charge of the quality assurance process, they offer high quality products with a typical Ayacucho history and beautiful finishing.

Before they worked with PERULAND they were selling only to the Local Market, this opportunity to sell abroad is very important to them not only because of the experience to learnt but it also provides them with a more continued work.

Jorge and Susan are both gentle people, always warm to receive new friends and with a great disposition to create new products and innovate in designs.

Our art and technique

Jorge buys the stone from quarries that belong to the communities that live near the area. Since the stone is heavy only adult people can work there, children are not allowed to work.

After buying the stone Jorge selects the best parts and cut them in small pieces he will later use. Using few tools like a stick, a polisher and a stone cutter he gives life to beautiful and amazing pieces. There is no small piece that can’t be molded by Jorge.

The Huamanga Stone is natural white, light pink, light green color and is a Peruvian Stone you can find only in Ayacucho. At the sun it looks a little transparent and is beautiful.
