framing suggestion:
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.
