Behind the Scenes: The Duchamp London Cufflink

 photo IMG_3931s.jpg

This month, British luxury menswear brand Duchamp London invited me to photograph behind the scenes at their cufflink maker in the English countryside. As an advocate of British manufacturing as well as an unhealthy curiosity in how things are made (as a child I was obsessed with 'How Do They Do that?'),  I jumped at the chance.

Traveling to Kent, I got a glimpse of a true cottage industry and a craftsman at work. We watched Bill as he created a molten alloy metal, poured it into hand-made molds & pulled out robust almost-finished luxury, just like magic.
