NATASCHA SUPPORTS LOCALLY MADE AND CRAFTSMANSHIP SUSTAINABILITY.
“My work aims to contribute to the reflection on the value of sustainability. A sustainability linked not only to materials, but in particular to man, human contact, craftsmanship. In this world, where everything is fast and produced in series, the survival of craftsmanship and manual skills is fundamental. This has to do with the value, the harmony and the enthusiasm with which a handmade thing is created. It’s not about making a product or an idea, it’s about preserving the well-being, the talent that is expressed by creating that product. This is craftsmanship sustainability.”
