We view our work as craftsmanship. We care about good craftsmanship, because it unites all of life. We set practical rules by ordering and classifying, comparing, and differentiating. Art and history provide important inspiration. Books expand our knowledge, and travelling broadens our horizons. Shifting perspectives from far to near, capturing the atmosphere, and detecting the mood bring us closer to the essence of craftsmanship.
