What does that mean for you?
Each piece in our line up (that varies from season) and of-course any custom design ordered through huckster artistry is unique.
“How can we call our pieces one of a kind if other people can have a similar piece”? –
Everything we sell is made by a real live artist’s hand touch… We literally feel for any rough spots and round off any corners that might be uncomfortable in use/wear. Furthermore; every piece is made using hand tools (Maria especially likes to intentionally’ leave tool marks or hand file marks organically on her pieces) Keep in mind we are both experienced and skilled artists. Most notably, we engineer our pieces within a specific degree of tolerance so that quite naturally they are “unique”. Though we have our seasonal product lines; once the season is over they are no longer produced(*1).
