Something Old, Something New

Everything has its own beauty,
If, we are willing to discover.

Sometimes, an old object values beyond the others,
That its presence indicates how people lived and created in the past.
As the past passed, it is nice to know that, handcraft remains.

Handmakers of nowadays create with contemporary aesthetics,
In a blend of old and new manners.

While we are looking closely at the handmade things,
We may sense something – the makers’ attitudes.

Their products are an extension of their minds,
And they are most alive.
