GLOSSARY

Hand-Turned

A Maker presses the solid block of wood against a lathe to shape the wood into a custom piece.

    Handcrafted

    Hands, not machines, bring the piece to life. Handicraft skills are honed over a lifetime of artistry.

      Off-Fallings

      Off-fallings are pieces leftover during the process of making leather goods, like saddles.

        18th & 19th Century Techniques

        The metal starts in raw form and is cut, shaped, forged and finished using our Maker’s hands and simple tools.

          Hand-Formed

          Our Potter holds the clay and forms it into shape with only simple tools or bare hands, not the pottery wheel.

            Woven, Not Printed

            Woven fabric is uniquely produced on a loom, while printed fabric is copied onto the material.

              Traditional, Quilted Manner

              Fabric is pieced and stitched together with a top, middle and back layer, creating a multi-layered textile.

                Continuous-Bias

                The binding at the edge of our quilts are stitched on an angle, a very expertly crafted process that is is stronger and more durable than straight grain binding, and more flexible around curves. 

                  Hand-Oiled

                  Each piece of wood is rubbed by hand with a food-grade mineral oil that protects and moisturizes the wood while giving it a slight sheen and finish.

                    Wheel-Turned

                    Our Potter places the clay on the potter’s wheel. While it spins, they shape the soft clay by hand.

                      Hand-Hammered

                      A special heavy hammer is pounded atop the rivet to secure it in place, usually designed to provide ornamentation.

                        Hand-Woven

                        These pieces are meticulously woven products using rope, reed, and other weavable materials.
