About

Machines have changed our world...Maybe that's why we sigh as we run our fingers along the rumply edges of a hand-thrown pot; we hardly realize how much our souls long to be surrounded by goods that remember the hands and the heart that made them. -Robyn Griggs Lawrence


Hecho a Mano is handmade.

Hecho a Mano supports artists making work at the intersection of innovation and tradition.

In an increasingly automated world, we believe it is important to uphold processes that are humanity's collective inheritance. Works made by hand reveal the mark of the maker, and express an incalculable heritage that we, as people, are gifted. When we hold a ceramic pot, we are not just holding a handmade object, but the entire history of craftsmanship that has led to creation of that vessel.


These materials go deep. How long has humanity been working with clay, fibers, wood? There is a cellular familiarity with these mediums that create an instant understanding. This can sometimes lead to the useless debate about whether or not craft is art.

We hope that the works here find resonance with you.
