Article Title

Craft Surrogates

Authors

Jonathan Nesci

Abstract

What “craft” means proves itself to be elusive and, at the same time, ubiquitous regarding the act of making. Through this written exercise I look inward and study where craft is found in my own work as well as observe how it applies to the work of my contemporaries. Although most think of a craftsperson as the individual who makes objects, my interests in fabrication span multiple materials and connection methods. Early in my journey I grew frustrated with limitations of my making skill sets. It took a few years to realize that making wasn’t my strength. Instead, I rely on “craft surrogates” to execute my ideas, people I can rely on for a level of quality that would otherwise take me years to refine.
