The Process of Handmade, Self-Taught Design

The Process of Handmade, Self-Taught Design
July 14, 2010 quickfix

Ben, our brother-in-law, Matt [shown above] and I are in the process of working to bring you new sculptures for Gatski Metal, furniture and handmade gifts for The Steel Fork shop and our Etsy shop. We give ourselves about 2 weeks to do the following (for each and every new piece)…

  1. Brainstorm Design
  2. Discuss
  3. Attempt Design
  4. Discuss
  5. Revise Design
  6. Discuss
  7. Attempt New Direction for Design
  8. Discuss
  9. Revise Again
  10. Wrap it Up

As you might imagine, it can be a very arduous process. It is exciting and excruciating at the same time. We undergo this 3 times each year- in earnest attempt to keep things fresh!

This time around- we are lucky to have Matt, a current Rhode Island School of Design student in architecture helping us out. He comes from a long line of handy people. He is particularly skilled at housebuilding and woodworking.

Next week we will be introducing our fabulous new line up of work [inspired in part by industrial designs]- make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter to get the first look!
