Christmas Reflector OrnamentWe've come to realize: Things are only things unless we humans invest meaning in them by paying respectful attention to their design, creation and exchange; only then can they become meaningful symbols for communicating and commemorating the important experiences & feelings in life.

Our job is to find these items that have soul: items which are crafted with attention to design and tradition as well as with the Joy of creation. Our job is also to pay attention to the future experience of the one to whom these pieces will belong: We make every effort to present them with respect for the experience and history of its crafting as well as with the Joy of its existence. Magic happens when a crafted item finds a home in the hands and heart of someone who connects to the chain of human energy that a beautifully crafted item represents. We seek to participate in this kind of magic whenever and wherever possible.
