Battistinis, made by hand . . . . . .

Battistinis, made by hand  . . . . . .

Made by Hand is a short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand — sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

Each film aims to promote that which is made locally, sustainably, and with a love for craft. Based in Brooklyn, the project takes its influence from the handmade movement there and elsewhere.
Writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of ‘Cut Brooklyn’ talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade—a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash. 

Personally we find it very interesting that Joel refers to the ten thousand hour rule to just get to the get to the start as only last week this was baing discussed in depth in the shop!
