Hi! My name is Aron Fischer...and I am the owner and maker at FG.
The name "Facture Goods" came from a conversation with my husband, John. We were sitting on our couch throwing out different names and ideas for my brand, when John said, “Why not call it Facture?” The funny thing was that my favorite professor used the word ALL THE TIME during figure drawing critiques in order to get her students to understand the power of making something by hand. It seemed serendipitous that two important people in my life had used the word around me.
A friend and I started a project that was based off of the hashtag #100daysofhappy called #100daysofhandmade in 2014. We were going to try to make at least one handmade object each day for 100 days and post it on Instagram. I focused on wooden utensils and cutting boards, not realizing at the time just how powerful Instagram can be as a marketing tool.
Each piece on this site has been made with my own two hands. I love to combine different materials in interesting and unexpected ways. I work with hardwoods, clay and metals to create small batch kitchenwares, utensils and provisions with a “primitive modern” aesthetic. By creating work that is somewhat rough, even crude, I am able to get my voice and touch into the work easily.
Interested in working with FG?
Shoot me an email and let me know what you are thinking! I currently work with stylists, designers, chefs, restaurateurs and certain retailers to create one of a kind pieces to fit their needs.
