Why are they on my blog? because they said something that is shocking and extraordinary, flying in the face of our cultural trend towards detachment from the material, and not at all what I expected from two people who have been pivotal in the rise of digital technology, and whose aesthetic seems to be the antithesis of handcraft:
We are in an unusual time in which objects are designed graphically, on a computer. Now we have people graduating from college who don't know how to make something themselves. It's only then that you understand the characteristics of a material and how you honour that in the shaping. Until you've actually pushed metal around and done it yourself, you don't understand."
Both were raised to value craft above all.
