We believe in cultivating the creative efforts of each of our employees. Nowhere is this more apparent than with our artisans and apprentices.
Our apprenticeship is based on the centuries-old practice of passing down a fine skill from the master craftsman to another individual. We believe learning from an accomplished artisan inspires confidence in the apprentice. In addition, this practice sparks creativity in both parties as they work together on a project. The apprentice works side by side with an artisan, learning the unique techniques of designing and building. The sharing of inspiration, knowledge, skill, and honor underlie every day’s work. Eventually, the apprentice will become an artisan, and the process will repeat itself, creating a continuous stream of creativity in the design and manufacturing. This practice builds a highly skilled team while establishing a highly productive and enjoyable working environment.
