Our Ethos and Mission

Craftsmanship is an attitude, not a skill. It is a desire that comes from within. Even if you don’t view yourself as a particularly crafty or creative person, you can still have the spirit of an artisan. Cultivate a passion for betterment, absorb yourself into whatever it is you are doing, do the job well for its own sake, take pride in the results, and do what is right even when nobody is looking.

If you can do that, then you are on the path of a craftsman and following in the footsteps of many a great man and woman who has left a lasting impact on the world and the hearts and minds of those who love them.

We don’t value craftsmanship anymore! All we value is ruthless efficiency, and I say we deny our own humanity that way! Without appreciation for grace and beauty, there’s no pleasure in creating things and no pleasure in having them! Our lives are made drearier, rather than richer! How can a person take pride in his work when skill and care are considered luxuries! We’re not machines! We have a human need for craftsmanship!

Firestone Studios are dedicated to making good art with every product as well as highlighting the Artisans who made it possible. What we make is just as important as how it was made as well as who made it. Through it all, we seek to balance our passion for history and tradition with our drive to innovate, combining old with new and form with long-lasting function.
