The artistry of craftsmanship  is an art form which has become endangered in our Industrial Age of mechanization, commercialism, and global trade. Craft means to make an an piece with care, skill, and ingenuity. A craftsperson is someone who sees what they do as a science and an art. They create each piece with passion, pride, and care. And they are constantly searching for ways to improve their artform. Craftsmen are  constantly exploring their domain and are deeply connected to their work.
