The Craft, The Workshop
In recognition of (American) Labor Day, which is celebrated this weekend, Lobster & Canary honors the work, the discipline, the craft that goes into the production of art.
One example: above are pictures from www.jasonwustudio.com, revealing a little bit of the care and artisanal detailing that Jason Wu and his team put into the making of his collections.
The form springs from the mind, the making (with needle or keyboard, paintbrush or mouse, chisel or mallet, pencil or horn, violin or dance-shoe) from the hands and the body, our feet. From the sweat the sweet.
