José Garcia is a sculptor who went blind a number of years ago. And now, all his female designs are of his wife’s face.
José works with the rich, red clay of the Oaxacan soil. There are no moulds here, no fancy machinery – just generations of tradition and history. His work is primitive and simplistic, but the emotions it inspires are complex.
You would not believe the love that radiates from this couple.
They have been married 35 years, and she is his eyes as they move around the workshop, her hand gently guiding him as it rests on his elbow. And when he sits at the worktable, clay in front of him, it is her face he creates, again and again.
