'Great American Artisans'

This is a project I began over 30 years ago - a photographic essay on the finest artisans in America: the special people who've dedicated their life to a craft and endowed it with their unique American perspective.

Like a quilt hung on a wall, the Artisan's work must be born of a practical use, even if it's never used for the intended purpose.
