A hammer's good for many things,
notably repairing broken-down Land
Rovers, but not, as far as I'm aware, a
principle ingredient in art (other than in
sculpture, but then it's the chisel that
does the crafting, not the hammer
itself). So I think this inscription, 'By
Hammer and Hand All Arts do Stand'
over the door of a large shed in
Shaftesbury, Dorset, uses the word
'hammer' in a generic sense - that there
always has to be a tool to transform the artist's intentions into the artwork. Other
than storytelling, which is hardly an art-form, I can't think of a single art or craft that
doesn't require some form of tool (but not usually a hammer!) to carry the message to
its recipients. So it's a bit of a mystery, this inscription. Was the shed a sculptor's
workshop - who knows? Maybe I'll find out one day.
