Handful of Salt Strikes Again

Our friends over at Handful of Salt have posted another little story about our work with the US Commerce Department (They ran one a while ago that can be seen here). I particularly liked their lead-in quote from Reagan, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ ” That was most certainly not our experience.

Their blog is about trying to redefine “craft” in a more modern and innovative way. This has always been a problem for those of us who feel saddled with the disparaging associations that some people have with this term. I stand accused as I sometimes associate glassblowers with a vagabond troupe of drug-addled slackers. Here’s to their mission (Handful of Salt, not the addled slackers). As always, Godspeed. Fight the good fight.
