Gina K Collection artisans are:
Perfectionists: We insist on excellence; quality materials, findings and finishes as well as quality workmanship. Materials must be carefully chosen to showcase their best attributes in the finished item, making each piece a beautiful and functional part of your everyday life.
Eco-Conscious: We use reclaimed materials whenever possible, reducing the amount of “trash” going to landfills. In many cases, reclaiming is the only available way to include a material in a work. In this way, we support our natural environment.
Teachers: A big part of traditional hand craftsmanship is apprenticing; a period of learning under a master through hands-on activity. Through one-on-one instruction, we pass on these values and skills the way our forebears did, with patience and reverence for our craft.
“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist” ~ Louis Nizer
