Rosarito, in Baja California, has quite a collection of professional artists, let’s meet them and see their work! Discover the beautiful artwork found in Baja California — and the artists behind it all — in this episode of CROSSING SOUTH.

We first meet glass carving genius, Jorge Luna, who uses sandblasting techniques that he invented himself. Then we see some traditional, and non-traditional paint and brush techniques. Lastly, we meet a real life professional sculptor, Juan Gastelum, who creates wax and clay models that are cast into metal masterpieces. Curious Jorge, of course, takes a stab at it.
