How we do it
In a time where fine art is rather reserved for political and philosophical statements, the craft, more than ever, become the bringer of pure and quiet beauty into our life. This is because objects made of natural materials as wood and clay, by hand, are the one of most necessary, beautiful, intimate, and comfortable things in our life.
We try to keep three pillars of production philosophy: refined design, select materials and masterly craftsmanship.
