So Long, Scaries

You know when those little fears and worries start ping-ponging around your brain? Stephen Zawistowski knows exactly what to do with them: Set them on fire. He designed these whimsical worry huts to burn your troubles—a ritual people have practiced for thousands of years. Use the included paper to write down any nagging thoughts, curl them up, and tuck them inside the mini house. Then, carefully put a lit match through the hole in the "floor" until the paper alights (only burn one worry at a time). It's a cathartic activity at the beginning of each week, before a big meeting, or anytime you get the jitters. Send it to a loved one who has a lot on their plate, or a friend who could use cheering up. Handmade in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

Sold individually.

Steve Zawistowski still remembers the first time he saw an ironworker forge two pieces of steel into one. The sparks, the noise, and the heat all became a symphony of creation. Years later, he saw a welder at a yard sale down the road. He slid on a welding mask and went to work right in his front yard, practicing until he had it down.
Since then, Steve has assembled a unique collection of new, vintage, and custom-made tools. This collection allows him to work in the time tested old style methods, all the while incorporating the freedom of creativity allowed by the modern techniques.
Steve's steel sculptures are inspired by American Sign Language. He remembers the girls in his seventh grade class using it to communicate in secret. "It drove us guys crazy, but it also fascinated me, and I wondered why more people didn't use it," he says. Now you can keep one of his sculptures that he calls "quiet comments" on your desk as a subtle reminder of love or peace.
