How do you think about technique?
In the world of the internet, as long as it photographs well, execution matters less. And that's really disappointing. Because I am super conscientious about construction.
Whenever I’m looking at art or a designed object, in my mind I’m visually deconstructing it. I’m fascinated by how artists and craftspeople realize their ideas—woodworkers, leathersmiths, my grandmother and her sewing.
I'm making things so that someone who’s an expert in their craft can look at it closely and it’s undeniably good. That’s what gets me excited.
