“Craft practices are at once defined and restrained by their connections to tradition. Viewing woodworking in the context of objects made with wood, housing, particularly stick frame construction, emerges as possibly the most widespread use of the material throughout the modern world. Utilizing these techniques in a studio based practice, it is my hope to further the conversation on how notions of craft fit into the modern world.” Ted Lott
