POETRY OF HANDS

“In a world where news of inhumanity bombards our sensibilities, where grasping for things goes so far beyond our needs, where time is squandered in busyness, it is a pleasure and privilege to pause for a look at handiwork, to see beauty amidst utility, and to know that craft traditions begun so long ago, serve us today.” John Wilson

This is the beginning of a personal project that celebrates handiwork. I like the diversity inherent in things made by hands, when no two creations will be exactly the same. I am interested in the history of a craft, the stories, the legends that shape its birth and enrich its development through the years, and hope to be able to document some of the slowly vanishing arts and crafts in different parts of the world.
