Erwin List Sanchez started using the lost-wax process to play around with the forms and shapes he saw during Deborah Stotzky's daily yoga practice...in the middle of the living room of their small Chelsea apartment. Deborah quickly became aware of these graceful, fluid, and strong miniature "yoga people" that kept popping up around the apartment and started to like what she saw....the mash-up was born. The first piece ever made was the Wheel Pose, a pure expression of an open heart. Erwin and Deborah hope that the pieces are not only beautiful to wear, but inspiring for practicing yoga and living life with an open heart. Each piece is handmade and alive with this spirit.
