Not too long ago, when one needs a kitchen knife, you don’t go to a store, you go to a blacksmith. When the knife blunts, you have it sharpened, not replaced. Ownership was not a consequence of an interchange between proprietor, commodity, and customer, but a connection between maker, workmanship, and beneficiary. This sustained relationship is one of interdependence and respect, built on the object as intermediary.
National Vending Gallery presents topic No. 4 Hand Made, a collection of products crafted by makers based in Singapore. Exerting their imagination on the physical material, each piece of work took shape through the hands of the designer. These objects of hand-manship brings back a genuine position to the flagrant use of terms in today’s culture – artisanal, hand-crafted, home-made.
