Last Christmas Eve, while traveling to visit family, we found ourselves driving down a busy three lane highway in Virginia. There seemed to be something in the road up ahead that was bringing traffic completely to a halt. As we got closer we realized that there was a small dog in the road. No one was stopping. Everyone was driving around this poor little guy just trying to avoid hitting him. Drury stopped the car, flipped on his hazards and picked up the dog and put him in the back. He was so tired and confused he didn't even try to run away. We looked at his tag. His name, 'SCOUT,' along with his owner's number was engraved so we made the call and got him home. We found out that SCOUT, a small and scrappy beagle, traveled over 10 miles from home that day. His owner said 'when he sees a deer, he takes off and will run and keep running until he winds up lost out in the wilderness (or on a highway) somewhere. He knows what he wants and will do everything in his power to get it.'
That's why we decided to call this project SCOUT. It's about those restless, talented souls who give everything to their craft. Who risk all. Who stop at nothing to make the thing they were destined to make. We wanted to create beautiful pieces that illustrate this calling—this drive that keeps us awake at night yet leaves us fulfilled and happy.
