The process of any endeavor becomes a part of the fabric of the end result.
Design used to be experienced as a sacred union of human, cosmos and creation. Ancient cultures would select the most pure amoung them to be the architects, or those who were to determine the siting of the building or city or to set the keystone. They knew viscerally that the emotions and experiences of the process would reverberate into the environment and the people for eons. They knew that the interface of human, material, earth and time would create an opportunity for growth, happiness and health.
Today Artisan is Everything Today we are hungry for the hand made craft of the artisan…why? A major trend in the world of design is rise and focus on the need for a truly personal experience. Artisan is everything. We are looking to feel and share a connection with something greater than ourselves, a delight or surprise through the design or the product or the architecture. We are asking the artist to be a conduit and share their 10,000 hours of repetitive exploration that results in mastery: an alignment with genius. We want a piece of the experience for ourselves, so that we can find a moment of alignment to the something greater than all of it put together.
This is what ‘good’ Feng Shui does for us: bypasses the brain to reach deep into our felt-sense and turn up the delight so that our very cells can hum along healing us from within. When that happens we hit the ‘mother-lode’ of getting out of our own way and letting our bodies and spaces bring us joy.
The energy from nature, the energy of smiles and compatibility of shared experience is a part of this creation and I am very excited to share this with you. Max Lamb’s Pewter Desk is a journey as beautiful as the creation itself. This is truly a desk of Feng Shui’s Metal energy: accurate, honed, unconditionally perfect, social, accountable, honorable, voice of celebration and creation.
