our designs - our hands
Useful, beautiful things, made by us since 1983
Artifaqt makes useful items well and beautifully.
We blend a discerning eye and passion for design with an experimental approach to process and
object making. We make wood and metal objects for the home, with an emphasis on serveware. Each of our designs begins on paper with pencil. Prototypes come to life with wood, clay, chisels, knives and hands in
this shop. From there, production paths vary from old school hands to 21stC technology. The finish on our
work is pushed to a level of surprise in hopes that people lingering over the touch will sense a greater
relation to the materials and craftsmanship. It speaks to our intent for durability
and longevity. And it’s fun to see metal mistaken for ceramic.
In addition to wood and metal serveware for home and restaurant use, Artifaqt continues
to offer the unique switch plate collection which was our first product, a small selection of
handmade furniture and lamps, and other home essentials.
Thank you for visiting. We hope you enjoy our full collection.
