Inspiring Words from a Late Night

But even as a small kid I was in love with the idea of being an artist: Making extraordinary things, having time to meditate, consider things, a daily practice or ritual.
~ Cameron Platter (Hand/Eye Vol. 9)


When we make things we are connecting to that part of ourselves that we imagine is the spiritual part, the part most resembling divinity.

Our making was becoming more important than the products of our craft.

Growth and progress are also mirages of accomplishment; being present here and now are the things we really need to worry about.

~ Callie Janoff (Handmade Nation)


Craft is a way of rejoicing, passing time, meditating, harnessing power, sharing and keeping creative forces in motion.
~ Betsy Greer (craftivism.com)
