Artisan Statement: Designing, making and discovering artisanal products for home and family is what Crosby and Taylor is all about. They excel at creating beautiful American made products for everyday use. "The name, Crosby & Taylor, pays respect to my ancestors, who were Cape Cod-based merchant sea captains. They sailed to the Orient and back countless times in the 1800s. We no longer need to sail to faraway ports to bring back beautiful treasures. We can make them ourselves right here. All of our products are designed and produced in Eugene. I generally start with a sketch and then develop a mock-up in paper or clay. From there we create an original by cutting, hammering, texturing, bending, welding, or carving."
