There is a wonderful resurgence of artisinal craft happening in our very industrialized, über digitalized paradigm. The fabulous paradox of finding homespun, manmade and locally made in this time of ye big-box, big-agra, big-pharma and big-banking all subsuming industry, is refreshing indeed.
I believe we need to nurture these fragile blossoms of humanity; their fruits bear more than just their product. They hold the seeds of community, spirit and culture. I am always moved by such humble indeavors with untold great and weighty means in their not so simple commerce.
Follow me as I traverse the web, scouting design and the craft and crafters of handmade and homemade for your reading pleasure.
