England's Cotswolds hide many subtle dimensions of the local culture. A hundred years ago, the delightful village of Chipping Campden hosted the Arts and Crafts Movement (refugees from the Industrial Age who despised mass-produced decorative art). Today, only one shop descended from those anti-industrial-design hippies survives -- the Hart Silversmiths. It was fun to meet the younger generation, whose members are still enthusiastic about the fact that "everything we make is a one-off."
