His family has lived in Antigua for more than 100 years and he takes great pride in practicing the same ceramic techniques his ancestors used. He wishes to help this tradition continue and he teaches anyone in his community who has an interest in learning.

Jose Arriola has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $450 and the most recent for $2550. Proceeds were used to purchase paints and materials for his ceramics to continue production.

Jose's beautiful work and his preservation of cultural techniques have brought him recognition in national exhibitions, and his municipality even created a video showing the process of how he creates his figurines.

Jose's children are all grown but but he does provide financial support for the education of one person outside of his family and he occasionally supports other children's school expenses.

Jose has been dealing with diabetes for over 17 years. His condition has caused many problems for him, but currently he is able to control it and enjoy his life.

"Hang them all year round"

These are beautifully painted, so much detail - tiny detail! I'm hanging these and my painted stars all year round - not just for the Christmas tree.

We are very delighted with the whimsical birds which now hang on our Christmas tree. They are brightly colored and well detailed. Love the toucan!

I purchased star ornaments for my best friend for Christmas. She, her husband, and each of her children were able to pick a star for their own. They loved it!
