HANSEL TILLMAN: WOULD YOU HIRE THIS GUY (PART ONE)?
Imagine yourself in possession of a small but growing furniture company and that until now you and your partner and a couple of doofuses-for-hire have done everything to get you where you are. But where your are is not where you want to be. Plus, you've got more work than you can reasonably handle, what with life outside the shop and all (balance, friends, balance). What to do? If you're us, you interview a relative of one of the doofuses to lend a hand and lighten the load. That's right, a Tillman. Horsehead Crating Company. Skilled at all things hand made but, frankly, a bunch of assholes. Anyway, a week ago we interviewed Hansel Tillman, a Swiss cousin of the original Horseheads, for a straight-up DoubleButter opening. In the shop, making our furniture. More on the results of the interview in the coming week but for now just a couple shots from his portfolio. These are from his long stay in Alaska working as a jackass-of-all-trades for a power company. Like the rest of the Tillmans, he's got a fine eye for beautiful decay.
