Professional or knack

Long ago when people did only what they needed to do, it was noticed that some people had a knack for particular things. Things were organised and people with a knack were given things to do they had a knack for. The knackers started to consider themselves special when compared to the knackless around them. So they renamed themselves professionals, so they could charge for their knacks. Which perhaps explains why there are so many knickknacks.


Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

Work in progress
