“Down in the valley”

Master Bowyer Jack Pinson

Can you distinguish between art and craft? Where does one end and another begin? Would you call someone who lives close to nature and according to its rules, who uses his hands to produce things both useful and beautiful, an artist or a craftsman, or maybe both?


Life is about perpetual tussle, striving for higher goals, a daily laborious laying of the landscape with scattered grains of sand. Life is more than wealth, wallet size, beautiful home or the latest model of an expensive car. Life is the art of survival, art of understanding, assimilation and empathy towards everything living. Life is a path of compassion and comprehension, all the rest is merely a footnote to our own personal story.
