LUIS CERÓN. The Route of the Artisans.

Since he was 18 years old, Luis has worked in a blacksmith shop. His teacher and uncle was an outstanding craftsman from the O'Higgins Region, Gonzalo Castro, creator of the Parronina de Población, in Peralillo. For 6 years he was with his mentor, time in which he was able to soak up the knowledge and techniques of this ancient trade. Today, Luis is a master in the art of forging and in the making of steel knives. In addition, he is a skilled craftsman who works with wood and ox horns. He learned woodcarving from a friend, while he knew the chub handicraft as a self-taught person. Now in his works he fuses metal with these materials, giving a unique stamp to his lines of objects, presenting contemporary, highly aesthetic designs, made from natural elements that come, in many cases, from his land in Marchigüana.
