Description

A book for makers, for seekers of all kinds, an exhilarating look into the heart and soul of artisans--and how their collective wisdom can inspire us all. "Despite our technological advances, we're busier than ever, our lives more frazzled. That's why the handmade object, created with care and detail, embodying a history and a tradition, is enormously powerful. It can cut through so much and speak in ways that we don't often hear, or that we've forgotten." --Eric Gorges, from A Craftsman's Legacy In this joyful celebration of skilled craftsmen, Eric Gorges, a corporate-refugee-turned-metal-shaper, taps into a growing hunger to get back to what's real. Through visits with fellow artisans--calligraphers, potters, stone carvers, glassblowers, engravers, woodworkers, and more--many of whom he's profiled for his popular television program, Gorges identifies values that are useful for all of us: taking time to slow down and enjoy the process, embracing failure, knowing when to stop and when to push through, and accepting that perfection is an illusion. Most of all, A Craftsman's Legacy shows how all of us can embrace a more creative and authentic life and learn to focus on doing what we love.
