Quote from “The Art Spirit”

Written on June 27, 2007 by mimecine

A quote from a good read “The Art Spirit” by Robert Henri, published in 1923:

“I love the tools made for mechanics. I stop by the windows of hardware stores. If I could only find an excuse to buy many more of them than I have already bought on the mere pretence that I might have some use for them! The are so beautiful, so simple and plain and strait to their meaning. There is no “Art” about them, they have not been made beautiful, they are beautiful.”

    Find/buy/inherit something old. Enjoy it. Use it. Admire it. Break it. Fix it with old tools (splintered wooden handles and brown iron with casting marks kinda old.)
