A Limited-Release Series of products
Elbert Hubbard, leader of the Roycroft Movement and boss to the artists of the Tommyrotters’ Club, was said by many to have been driven by profit more than the pursuit of craftsmanship and creativity. Sustaining the costs of the Roycroft campus, building the international reputation of the Roycrofter collective, and making a handsome financial return drove Hubbard to demand more and more output from the artists.
Woeful to hand over their most prized creations only to have them be sold off, the artists of the Tommyrotters’ Club would steal away into the woods of East Aurora to a remote cabin and hide their most cherished works. Away from the clutches of Hubbard and his hungry horde of patrons, this secret cache of art was representative of Tommyrotters’ Club rebellious nature and dedication to create for creation’s sake.
In celebration of their spirit, we’d like to introduce to you The Masterwork Collection: A Limited-Release Series of products that are too exceptional to be the rule. This series includes releases of products not available in our regular line due to rarity or experimental technique. Some releases will be available a couple times each year. Others will be produced just once and never again.
