Making is a kind of "bringing into being." Its an act of co-creation. An opportunity to participate in the ongoing act of creation. To be co-Creator. Design is a kind of making; the making of a functional approximation of a thing to be made. A "design" in this strange ontological state as "being as potential." A design is an approximation of a possible future. But a design does not find its full actualization until it is made. Until is no longer exists as a possible future but finds itself embodied in the stuff of Creation — earth, metal, wood, stone — through the sweat and physical effort of human labor. To make something is to enter into a mutual and respectful relationship with what is possible and what could be. To impose order and establish meaningful relationship between materials and objects to produce a thing that has use, purpose and meaning.
