The following post is brought to you by Ketel One Vodka. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.
I’m always impressed with the quality of submissions we get on Design Milk, and often amazed at what people can make with their hands. Making beautiful and amazing things is not a talent that I possess, and I’m always jealous of the skills and sheer innovation that comes into my email inbox every day. I know that there’s got to be someone out there reading this right now who could definitely benefit from this!

Could it be you?
The modern craftsman (or craftswoman) sits at the fascinating collision of modernity and craft, and creates something contemporary either by use or by material, using tried and true techniques and, sometimes, good old-fashioned muscle. This is someone who pushes the limits of what traditional craft can do. The true modern craftsman is an innovator, someone worthy of representing Ketel One and the tradition of making high quality products.
The winners, selected from modern craftsmen who live in the USA, will receive a pretty sweet portion of the Ketel One Legacy to use to develop, hone, and promote their skills, as well as take their work to the next level.
Do you believe you are a modern craftsman? Enter to receive a share of the Ketel One Legacy fund and some fantastic press in Wallpaper* by completing an entry form here and showing them your work and skills. Good luck!
