The Lowdown: Handmade design brand focusing on contemporary design

Awesomeness: Embracing craft and technology to bring small-batch handmade goods to fruition through maker-designer collaboration.

The goal is to bridge a gap between studio artists and the design marketplace. Nick believes the best way to execute this is by creating efficient systems of well-designed handmade objects where the production process is taken into consideration when designing the original model. In order to execute the prototypes for our first collaborative collection, we utilized the Asheville Maker’s space, our neighbors at The Refinery, to 3D print models for slip-cast porcelain mold systems.
