Every artist, every entrepreneur needs inspiration. I love to learn people’s stories. When I talk with our artisans my first question is most often “How did you think of this?” Each answer, like each artisan is unique – but the common thread is that we are all inspired by the world around us.

All around the U.S. and around the world, the sand and sea provide an inspirational spark for so many of our artisans’ designs. At times the inspiration is obvious, other times it is far more subtle and perhaps may be seen only in the choice of palette or texture.

But at all times, the fruits of creativity are a reminder that none of us is alone and we are all connected to something larger than ourselves.
