Praise for the Handmade Object

Praise for the handmade object.

The handmade object into which its maker has imbued life.

To hold this object is to be in relationship with a living entity,

its elements activated by the craftsman’s care.

Such an object is a companion.

When a tool,

it is a collaborator

in the interaction between head, heart, hand,

and the material being acted upon to form a new object.

Let us not forget the sublimity of our relations with handmade objects.
