Pottery – shiny coppery  blue glaze. That’s what we call Raku. Craftsman carving a rolling pin on his ancient crafting tool. Tesserai of all shades made for the winter outdoors. Frost free to shine out on the patio table. Shiny copper trinkets made so painstakingly on display today. Intricate woven cloth on the weaving machine. Watching her do it by hand. Glass blowing in the marquee, skilfully crafted for us to view. Delicate fruits of our desire.

Bees are working in the hive making that clever honeycomb. What a craft is that. Stone workers crafting stones for our admiration. Animal faces to name a few. Sculpted wood from the other side of the world. Deep dark brown with shine. Is it all a labour of love?
