Luce Artist Biography

Enrique Rendon collected burrs from the fields and stuck them together to create small figures and animals. He also constructed tiny pieces of furniture from tin and aluminum. A few years before he retired, Rendon became good friends with the santero (carver of wooden saints) Horacio Valdez and began carving small images of saints, or santos.
