Totem objects activate the senses, where the aliveness of a piece is brought together through material and the handmade while transporting and connecting you to a place, a feeling and a story. The intent of bringing beauty into the home and how we live comes to life in how we produce through the hands of artists in different parts of the world in small productions. It is slow. It is thoughtful and we celebrate the imperfect. - Kim Ficaro

"...she is an astute and respectful observer of how to be a traveler in the world: what it means to submerge deeply into the sensory details of place; how to honor culture, history, and tradition; how to come back from a journey better than when you left."- interview for Apiece Apart Travels- by Leigh Patterson
