Tim Hansen and Kate Luchini: Digs Enamels
In your words… Tell us about your organization, business, initiative.
digs studio makes the old new again by creating contemporary, one-of-a-kind enamels using traditional methods. Each piece is hand-formed from copper and layers of enamels, applied and kilnfired. The results are tactile, pieces that reflect the natural beauty of the materials.
