“We question the material. However, do we take a moment to think about the tool?”

David Clarke   |   London, England

The Tool At Hand questions how we make something and what we make it with.

We question the material. However, do we take a moment to think about the tool?

What are the alternatives to the traditional way? We are usually shown how to make something. We copy that technique, then perfect that technique and become an expert, a master craftsman! I am not interested in becoming an expert at all. What interests me is building in the element of risk, the wonderful notion of play, and wait for the unexpected!
