How are things made? What goes on inside the mind of the potter, the sculptor, the silversmith, the maker? The objects that populate our lives are products of intense deliberation and bold aesthetic decisions.

By delving into the philosophies, techniques, and histories of artists and craftspeople working in a broad range of styles and media, this series offers a glimpse into the makers’ minds.
