300 miles north of where the Mayflower made landfall in the New World lies a pre-historic landscape frozen in time. Largely isolated from the 400 year onslaught of colonization and industrialization, it's salted pine forests and stone coast managed to escape timber saws yet continually bears a near constant beating by the sea. Written and painted into our cultural identity by names like Longfellow, Thoreau, Wyeth, Homer, Hopper, and Kent -- it is a refuge for the awkward and inspired, where it's first settlers felt God's plan for humanity might finally be fulfilled among it's unfathomable beauty and abundance.
This is a land of fisherman, farmers and foragers, painters, potters and poets. Where those adrift in modern society find their mooring and generations of back-to-the-landers have made their homes amidst one of the last surviving frontiers. Fiercely individual yet militantly communal, it is a place where a man's form reflects his function, a place where saying means nothing and doing is everything.
KILN is fathers, husbands and friends, seekers and doers, travelers in both the physical and mental sense. We believe in subtlety and nuance, the permanent versus the fleeting. We seek substance - authentic histories, purveyors of handmade, small craft, heirloom-quality goods that do no harm. Inspired by a life lived at the edge of the earth, welcome to KILN.
