RE-USE RE-CYCLE RE-PURPOSE RE-THINK RE-CLAIM RE-BUILD
We find it,
and we engage and build.
We are given it and we re-form it. We see it, and have visions of transformation. We tear it out and save it; it is something for someone. Sometimes we just sit and stare at things...and wonder.
Materials are unique; each have specific uses and can be manipulated in only their specific ways. Its finding these specifics that allow artistry, reformation, preservation and re-use.
We value materials and their use, trying to always account for their involvement instead of their disposal.
If it can be re-used or re-formed, it will be.
We love things with a long lifespan. Metal, certain woods, earth and combined natural materials. We seek the intuitive nature of each materials use and re-use - will it be right? will it last?
Each material has a language. We are always learning and becoming more proficient in the dialects.
