What does the word craft mean to you? Skill, dedication, sensitivity to materials and striving for excellence? We agree. But in a world of machinery and automated plug-ins, what does it take to achieve true excellence?
Matt is the designer and tinkerer behind Wood&Faulk. This is the name of two streets that he lived on during his time in Kansas. "Back then, I learned so much about working on old houses, building furniture, plumbing, electrical, working on cars, wood projects, metal projects and more. I felt like I should honor those earlier years".
Today Matt lives in Portland, got a 103-year-old house with a little shop in the back and endlessly share his projects with the world. Apart from his blog where you can follow his different projects and inspiring Do-it-yourself Guides, Matt is spending his time working with many interesting clients doing design and creative direction. Some of these things you can find in the online shop.
Let’s elevate craft once again to a word that represent a genuine human work, beyond computers or machinery. A person whose efforts hold a sense of purpose, transforming one’s vision into a meaningful statement. People like Matt have something to say and choose to communicate through creating graceful products...
