Cordillera - Marion Codeo, hailing from Calasipan, Atok, Benguet, has found his artistic calling in the quaint town of Bontoc, Mt. Province. Renowned for his remarkable skill in crafting miniature vehicles, he specializes in creating tiny masterpieces like mini buses, truck, vans, jeeps, and an array of other vehicles.

His journey into the world of miniature artistry began in elementary school, where his passion for creating small cars first took shape. Over the years, his craft has evolved and modernized, reaching new heights in 2004. Today, he not only continues to refine his art but also shares his talent with others, helping them replicate their own vehicles in miniature form.

Despite his growing popularity, Codeo remains humble, with most of his clientele being fellow community members. Pricing for his meticulous work varies, depending on the intricacy and size of the project. His innovative methods include using flat sheets, recycled plastics, damaged umbrellas, and various other materials.

Codeo's dedication to his craft has not gone unnoticed. In 2016, he clinched the top spot in an Artwork Contest, showcasing his exceptional talent. Furthermore, in 2022, he received a prestigious Plaque of Recognition for Outstanding Practices in Upcycling and Crafts Production.

For Codeo, each miniature creation is a labor of love, requiring immense patience and hard work to replicate every intricate detail of a vehicle. Alongside his passion for crafting, he also tends to his farm, embodying a true Renaissance spirit in both art and agriculture.
