A Focus on What's Important

Beauty, which is what is meant by art, using the word in its widest sense, is, I contend, no mere accident to human life, which people can take or leave as they choose, but a positive necessity of life.
- William Morris, The Beauty of Life, 1880

Things men have made with wakened hands
    And put soft life into
Are awake through the years with transferred touch,
    And go on glowing
For long years.

And for this reason, some old things are lovely
Warm still with the life of forgotten men
    Who made them.

-D.H. Lawrence

The things that we have around us become part of our lives. We can surround ourselves with mass-produced objects or we can live among meaning and aesthetics. A combination of function, design, materials, history, and craftsmanship produces a pleasing and deeper effect on our being than a sweat-shop or plastic piece of furniture. The object talks to us then and lives with us. It creates connections in our minds and hearts. In my work I strive for simplicity, harmony and health.
