Meet the Artisans

“It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God.”
Mahathma Ghandhi

Our artisans use their hands, their brains, their dreams, their experiences, their talent, and the gifts imbued in them to inform the creative process, their choice of medium, and their designs. We respect each for what they do best, and work with each to choose the work that they like most and that they believe best reflects their intentions, to in turn showcase to you.
