“With crafting, you can never make a mistake because it's your own unique creation.”
Heidi Rew

Soetsu Yanagi
“Un'opera priva d'innata bellezza è un'opera morta: ecco qual'è dunque l'importanza dell'artista-artigiano al quale noi oggi chiediamo non solo di produrre delle buone opere, ma anche di lavorare a stretto contatto con l'artigianato tradizionale in modo da far rivivere la bellezza anche negli oggetti di uso comune.”
Soetsu Yanagi, The Unknown Craftsman: A Japanese Insight Into Beauty
