Hand crafted

Hand crafted

The Hebrew proverb that a beautiful thing is not always perfect is pretty much the anthem of my life. The magic is in the imperfection, the lovely whims of nature or the crafter’s hand. There’s a reason so many people gravitate toward old gnarled trees. I believe it’s because it reminds us of our humanity and how the trials we’ve lived through have shaped us into something beautiful and obscure. My work tends to reflect that worldview anyway, but anything by hand really embodies it. Thank you, Natalie Channin, for reigniting a dormant passion!
