The hand-made: Desire for the narrative

There is a third point or feature that Creative Arts Today (page 196) underlines in relation to the hand-made:

the hand-made implies 1) taking risks and accepting unpredictability as against industrial production and design that require certainty and predictability

quality in the hand-made is perceived as coming from 2) craftsmanship and mastery of a craft

and the hand-made object often 3) stimulates a desire to know more about its story and its maker.

As an example of a designer/maker who is passionate about building and telling stories with her pieces Creative Arts Today quotes Donna Wilson (, accessed 27/07/2017)

She compellingly tells her story and thus certainly creates a personal connection with people through her carefully crafted products.
