On the Surface

We love that there are artists who understand the importance of utility and the wear of surface in the commonplace. We also love the introduction of industrial elements into the home, both on a historical and aesthetic level. To us, recognizing the experience and history of an object (manifested) in it's surface is a respectful appreciation of life and age.
