Authenticity, The Italian Artisan, and Wood

BY KELLEN CATANI
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

Wood speaks for itself. The tree grows for years, learning about the Earth, becoming its own, developing character. Never perfect, but a unique form a life that always seems to mesmerize. Kellen Catani and his company Purebred Wood and Craft Co. cherishes this imperfection. When it is time for the tree to move on, they repurpose its life into functional and beautiful objects, fully embracing the culture of the Italian artisan as they labor. Purebred exposes the persona that resides in the tree and therefrom create their own expression of authenticity, always exemplifying a deep respect for this material that no man can truly comprehend.

Brouwerij Frontaal

BY ROEL BUCKENS
@ VOL 25 ON SEP 05, 2017

Tijdens een pack-back reis door Australie kreeg Roel Buckens de smaak van speciaal bier te pakken. Na thuiskomst stortte hij zich op het brouwen van bier. Eerst vanuit zijn keuken, maar al snel startte hij zijn eigen micro-brouwerij Frontaal op STEK.

Volgens Roel bestaat er niet één lekker bier, met de bieren van Frontaal wil hij liefhebbers bijzondere smaken en geuren laten ervaren.

Onlangs heeft Roel de uitbreiding van zijn brouwerij via crowdfunding weten te financieren. Zijn presentatie laat zien hoe hedendaagse ontwikelingen een ambacht kunnen stimuleren.
