If you will, open your mind and take a look at these objects. These are just a few of the eighty pieces I purchased on this last buying trip. The focus of this collection are functional objects, American made, before technology. For me, each piece reads as a sculpture, modern and simple. I have fallen in love with the design and the engineering skills it took to make these. Some are factory made and some are made purely by hand, all of them, in my eyes, are a lost art by the people who created them.
