Gaspar Calvo Fabian & Nayeli Cruz – Master Carvers from Oaxaca

Gaspar & Nayeli
Gaspar & Nayeli

We list Gaspar Calvo Fabian and Nayeli Cruz together, because they’re a husband-and-wife team working in the Oaxacan tradition of wood-carving. Gaspar Calvo Fabian hails from the Fabian family of San Martin Tilcajete, Oaxaca, while his wife Nayeli Cruz is the daughter of pioneer master folk artist Isidoro Cruz. They each offer their versions of carved and whimsically painted animals, and El Interior is fortunate enough to feature a number of their pieces!
