Dana Master is the founding artist of Gilbert & Leona, a small group of craftspeople and designers creating handmade products out of repurposed material and other recyclables. Their mission is to reclaim industry cast-offs like post-manufacture leather and hardware to make one-of-a-kind products that are as useful as they are unique.
Their belief is that one of the best ways to limit our participation in throwaway culture is to produce quality products that last. Their company name reflects the philosophy and values of a time, when a different relationship to objects meant everything had a purpose, even an unintended one.
