HÅNDVÆRK is a new magazine or 'bookazine' from Denmark profiling craftspeople, artisans, makers and and industry communicators in contemporary Scandinavian craft and design.
What makes this fascinating and beautiful magazine unique is that it offers helpful guidance for makers in a space between home industry and light production.The seventh issue of HÅNDVÆRK takes us on a visit to an architect, a design firm, a blacksmith, a brazier, a bricklayer, a carpenter and a thatcher, among others, and demonstrates how bathroom tiles can be made with a high content of crushed discarded bricks.
