Artisans of the Land - Clockwork 9

Artisans of the Land


Cleveland, like many ‘rust belt’ cities, too often doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Craftsmanship and artistry aren’t exclusive to what most commonly consider ‘art.’

Artisans of the Land is a short-form documentary series produced by Clockwork 9 featuring Cleveland entrepreneurs who have evolved their artistic talent into successful enterprises.
