About The arts + crafts research Studio

Transdisciplinary Collaboration
We are artisans with a common interest in making things that explore cultural and aesthetic systems through art, craft and design. Our projects assert new ways to explore material, form and experiential content. We cultivate experimentation guided by engagement with the world and collaboration with our peers. We give shape to the dialogue between traditions of hand-craftsmanship and the aesthetics of digital modernity. Our work is comprised of independent and collaborative projects which include art, craft and design.
Collaborators include fashion designer Sigfrido Holguin and a rotating cadre of international artisans and makers.
