Man's creative instincts have, from earliest times, prompted personal expression in ways that illustrate his genius and make a statement about his traditions. The examples chosen for inclusion in the first catalogue combine artistic strength with originality and whimsy with form and design. Each is a unique creation and represents a directness of image and conceptual quality giving insight into its creator and an appreciation of the integrity of the artisan. The craftsmanship inherent in each of the articles lends an elegance which is both dramatic and subtle. Time and familiarity enhance their beauty and broaden the context of their significance as exceptional acquisitions.
