I asked @ebw_artwork why folks should support makers and her answer is a personal favorite:
"In my opinion, there’s an intimacy – on so many levels – to using handmade/handcrafted goods. Makers and artists who put their hands to their materials are doing so much more behind the scenes to arrive at that piece – it’s an extension of who they are. When I work with a client, I’m considering more than just color, more than just how it “fits” logically or aesthetically (although those are always considerations). I’m thinking about what represents them and what they might be able to identify with in my work. It’s just one more way of relating/conversing human to human."
