Artisan: Rocío Dávila Rojas

Artisan Rocío Dávila Rojas

Rocío Dávila finds joy in living and creating, in realizing those little things that make life large. She has found artistic fulfillment in product design, working primarily with leather and gourds.

"Although I have taken courses in artistic design, I consider myself self-taught, since I have learned more from practice over the years. My work strives to show the inherent goodness of artisan labor, which is useful, durable, and ornamental. Through my own work, I enjoy sharing, and showing that we are able to do a labor of love in which we teach something of our own culture. I dedicate myself exclusively to this activity, and have formed a small working community of artisan families to generate a sustained production."

Dávila's artistic and creative streak has taken her to explore different mediums and she enrolled in a design course offered by Lima's Art Museum. Apart from working with gourds, Dávila designs unique home furnishings that bear her distinct mark, focusing only on natural materials.
