HANDMADE VERSUS MACHINE MADE.

11th December 2017




I ask you, is there anything more beautiful in design than something made entirely by hand, encompassing the prowess of the physical self and the intellectual yearnings of the maker. All very noble and sincere, and quite unbelievable that so many things in the 21st century are still made by hand. In fact it is so unbelievable as to not be believable, because it isn't true.

Most manufacturers, especially of so called handmade bespoke kitchen furniture, push the concept of handmade because of the connotation to wholesomeness, integrity and sincerity, but in their deceitful endeavours they forget the most important part of the equation, the work itself. If it isn't made by hand it simply doesn't look right and lacks the beautiful nuances of work truly made by hand. So rather than listening to the bullshit, simply open your eyes.
