CW&T exists to create the things we want to see in the world.
We live in a world of our own making. It’s a world where every object has its purpose, although not always purposeful, and where common objects receive uncommon consideration.
Things here are made to last. Not just a lifetime, but your great great grandchildren’s lifetime. And then some. Maybe someday, eons from now, an alien archaeologist will be excavating this archaic land we once called Earth and stumble up a Pen Type B. Perfectly intact with a slight patina, it will speak to the care humans took in their work and the tools they used to do it.

The Label System
We make a lot of things. Part of our practice is showing our process. So, From inception to execution, everything we make is assigned a label to track and share its development over time.
From the first sketch at the onset of a project, it's assigned a Project ID. The Project ID is created with a formula that pulls from a selection of variables.
the dot color is generated from that ID.
