Soetsu Yanagi
“Una cosa utile non può essere poco pratica o fragile in quanto esiste una stretta relazione fra funzione e bellezza. Un oggetto per essere utile deve essere affidabile, e non perdona nessuna indulgenza. Nel creare un oggetto destinato all'uso pratico, chi lo fa non pone se stesso in primo piano o nel caso specifico, in superficie. In questi oggetti l'errore, l'autoaffermazione sono ridotti al minimo. È questo forse un altro dei motivi per cui le cose d'utilità pratica sono belle.
Secondo me, gli oggetti il cui creatore rimane anonimo hanno facile accesso alla bellezza: il fatto che i più begli esempi di arte funzionale esistenti al mondo siano quasi sempre quelli che non hanno avuto l'opportunità di recare la firma di chi li ha fatti, dovrebbe far riflettere molto seriamente.”
Soetsu Yanagi, The Unknown Craftsman: A Japanese Insight Into Beauty

Renee Rigdon
“Creation from chaos is natural. We've come to a place where we've realized that we have this actual physical need to create things. We've discovered that we hate people en masse, we're sick of homogenized culture, and these realizations have left holes in our hearts. We create to fill those holes, to be able to sleep at night knowing we've done something, even a small something, to confront the manufactured culture that is currently being churned out.”
Renee Rigdon
