A Craftsman's Legacy: Why Working with Our Hands Gives Us Meaning

by Eric Gorges Author

An office-worker-turned-metal-shaper visits with fellow artisans—calligraphers, potters, stone carvers, glassblowers, engravers, woodworkers, and more. Gorges, who has a popular tv program along these lines, 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.
