The idea of function has always interested me. As a young girl I was introduced to a community of artisans in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where my family vacationed every summer. I remember being totally enamored by this group of makers and the love they put into the items they made and used. It inspired me to not just work with my hands, but to make art that promotes community, to make items that are made with love and are meant to be used as a part of someone's daily life. I would love to share my pieces with you. Follow this link to purchase:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/KateSavageStudios?ref=search_shop_redirect
