All over the world, our artisans speak of the joy that comes from creating something that will put a smile on the face of a fellow human being, even though that person may be halfway around the world and they are never likely to meet. They talk of the sense of legacy, knowing that the works they have fashioned will likely endure as cherished treasures for years to come.
For most artists and artisans, their work is as much spiritual as it is practical and financial. Many believe that there is a bit of their soul in each work of their hands.
At this time of religious and secular celebrations, and at this time of new beginnings, let us join together in a toast to the human spirit!
