There’s something to be said for a handcrafted object and taking the time to create something really great

“What does handmade mean to you?
In college, I had a job drawing artifacts for archaeologists. Oftentimes I would see a person’s fingerprint in some 2000-year-old piece of pottery. It would blow me away every time, and I would put my finger in the same place as theirs had been. To me, handmade describes the connection you feel when observing something crafted by another human. Whether it’s a physical object or simply an experience, you recognize their unique mark. I don’t get that connection with mass-produced things.”
