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 hand-etched cat and cat paw ball gourd ornments are made by artisans at Tito Medina's workshop in Huancayo Peru. Gourd carving is a traditional craft of the Andean mountain region and in the Medina family it spans four generations. The art of carving gourds is helping to bring sustainable income to more than 20 artisans and their families. These natural vegetables are skinned, sun dried, hand-etched and burned to create the designs that adorn their surface.

Available in red or natural with a black background they make a perfect ornament to decorate your home and a great gift for cat loving friends. The ornament comes complete with the string for hanging.
