Segundo.

Hoy visité a Segundo Rodriguez, artesano tradicional del mimbre y sello de excelencia 2015. Su trabajo se centra en objetos utilitarios de sobremesa tejidos con huira muy fina, resultando delicados y únicos. Me contó sobre sus inicios, del tiempo que trabajó en otros rubros y de como la artesanía lo llamo de vuelta para siempre. También hablamos de la experiencia colaborativa con diseñadores, de la tecnología y lo incierto del futuro. Y cerré la visita compartiendo un té con Doris, su señora, después de acompañarla a rescatar cebollas abandonadas.

Today, I visited Segundo Rodriguez, a traditional wicker craftsman who won a seal of excellence in 2015. His work focuses on utilitarian tableware objects, woven with very fine “huira”, resulting delicate and unique. He told me about his beginnings, the time he worked on other fields and how the craft called him back forever. We also talk about the collaborative experience with designers, technology and the uncertainty of the future. And I closed the visit sharing a tea with Doris, his wife, after accompanying her to rescue abandoned onions.
