Why buy handmade?
Artist, Artisan, Maker – whatever the title one chooses to use – we are people who create with passion.
Here at the glass station, into each item goes great thought about every single detail, things we all care about – but often don’t think about with each and every purchase. From the materials used and the sourcing of them, to meticulous attention to the very last detail on the finished piece - you can feel comfortable knowing that whatever you purchase has been made with quality materials; your dollars will not support untenable working conditions in a sweatshop overseas and each and every item has been created by someone who wants her products to be cherished for years.
“When you buy from an independent artist, you are buying more than just a painting, a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months and years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying nights of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, enough money to feed the children, the birds, the dog. You aren't just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of the heart, a part of the soul, a private moment in someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and the doubt; something that puts the life into the being.”
