Handmade is a story about creation, its essence, celebration of simplicity, beauty of art and folk crafts. From the first to the last act of this series, we see how a work of art is created, symbolizing the unbreakable link with nature, tradition and folklore. After all, what we create is a part of each of us, a reflection of our inner self and the environment around us.
We surrender to the natural power of creation, which is the bond between us and nature. At each stage of the cycle, one of three important elements of creation can be found: The hands that can hold, combine or break, the all-seeing eye of the creator, and the threads that connect the physical to the invisible and unspoken.
Each counterpart make us aware of the genesis of her inspiration: oysters freshly fished from the sea, eagle eggs in the mountains, wild vegetables growing in the field, and finally in honeycombs hanging on a branch from the edge of the forest. During each trip she takes with her a bundle on a stick, collects all the Eyes she finds in it, to hide them on her return in a wooden box, as the basis of her inspiration with the idea: we were created and we want to create in the same way, according to the laws of nature and in unity with the element of life.
