From the Editor
When putting together this issue on the theme Forge, we knew we had to include blacksmithing and jewelry, stories of artists who have forged new paths, and stories of people with the vision to create change. But this issue holds other surprises. Here you’ll discover a hip hop glass artist, Korean brassware called yugi, a zoologist turned jeweler who sources bones only from a seller with a permit from the US Fish and Wildlife Service, a veteran who transforms military uniforms into paper, a history of the ACC shows, and the story of a ceramic rooster that has become a symbol of resistance for the strong people of Ukraine.
This is an issue about people making their own way, transforming what they think needs to be transformed, and reimagining craft. We hope that it sparks new thinking and fortifies your spirit.
