A Peruvian touch..

I recently came across Edmundo Contreras work which I am showcasing today. He is a Peruvian artist who works in the andahuaylino (Andahuaylas) style. He uses painted glass and crackled finishes in a technique that is both traditional and modern. His motifs range from the pre-Hispanic, colonial, and ethnic to the beauty and culture of the Andean world and its wildlife.
In his own words ""My art strives to be a testimony to history and tradition". Edmundo has received the Vizcardo & Guzmán Medal as a master artisan, awarded to him by the Peruvian Congress. You can clearly see why he is called a master craftsman as his work is outstanding. I love the look and the intricate patterns in each of his creations. My favorite is the clock in the first picture and I would love to have it in my home.
