Handmade in Buffalo

Handcrafted works are more than just objects of art, they’re objects of soul, reflecting the unique perspective of their maker. Buffalo and Western New York have a long history of inspired craftsmanship – a legacy forged by the visionary genius of Frank Lloyd Wright, Elbert Hubbard’s Roycroft Campus and countless others who have left their mark on this region. Workmanship of that caliber is alive and well today in studios where you can view artists at work and purchase or order a handcrafted item worthy of the highest standards of the craftsman movement.
