“It’s a true exchange of ideas. Sometimes it gets heated, sometimes it’s calm. Sometimes we come to a decision on the first day. At other times, we cannot agree at all. After all, there are always two brains and four hands at work.”

American Craft Magazine, June/July 2016


“It’s a soul thing. The things we use were touched by somebody. Once you see those pieces, you identify a moment in your life with that particular object. The tool that someone used in making something—there’s sweat on it, there’s toil on it. A musical instrument—someone played it. The human contact is part of what we do, and the reason we select the objects.”
