Niccolo Jose BA ’10


Niccolo Jose BA ’10 is an artist and self-taught woodworker who creates sculptures and furniture out of reclaimed wood. Jose, who works out of his own studio, has plans to expand in 2020 to a larger space in Lipa in the province of Batangas, Philippines. Jose explains that the country’s frequent typhoons mean that its trees are often bent by the wind, creating a special wood grain that’s beautifully suited for crafting. His work can be found at Green Canyon Leisure Farms in Tarlac; in various galleries, including Altro Mondo Arte Contemporanea in Makati; and in the homes of satisfied clients.
