Equipment: to be equipped for life is to be better equipped for living.
A tool is nothing/or of no use :(objective) use if not married with the material and purpose for which it was designed (function).
A plate is nothing, an object without food.
My work functions on its own, but is completed when used as a tool.
What I consider essential to my life may not be essential to many/any; personal choice.
An idea of the personal/intimate is essential to an idea of identity; as a plate maker, I work on a more human scale.
I make tools for the everyday.
A tool is a way of/or creation.
A means of an end/beginning.
