food for thought

I enjoyed this obituary for Alan Peters from The Economist
What mattered most to him was that a piece was simple and honest, that it worked, and that it was good enough to put his name to. If people called it art, all well and good; but his was the ethic of the craftsman.
I am a hopeless woodworker, but the article captures something of an ethic that I aspire to. Go and read it.
