Tito Medina Artisan Story
Peru

Tito Medina belongs to the fourth generation of gourd carvers; his parents Eulogio Medina and Guillermina Salome, are from Cochas Chicas, Peru which is well known for carving, etching, burning, and transforming gourds into unique works of art. Tito is a master craftsman and is known across the continent for his fine carvings and pyro-engraved gourds, each one telling a unique story. He has been carving gourds since childhood, and opened his first market stall in 1986. Through his work he has promoted the traditional craft of his region and has raised it to the level of a fine art. Over the years he has participated in several art fairs and received numerous awards for his work.

These decorative pinwheel gourds, one long and one short, are etched and burned by artisans at Tito Medina's workshop in Huancayo Peru. Gourd carving is a tradition in the Medina family that spans four generations and it is helping to bring sustainable income to more than 20 artisans and their families. Gourds are a natural and uniquely shaped vegetable, similar to a pumpkin or a squash. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned, and sun-dried before artisans etch and burn the intricate designs that adorn its surface.

A pair of pinwheel gourd ornaments would make a wonderful addition to any Christmas Tree this holiday season, as a decoration for your home, or as a gift for a friend.
