LIFE'S SMALL ART
Designer. Jacky Ching
In recent years, Hong Kong has developed a culture of handmade products with great fervor, and handmade markets have become the leisure place for many people. Many people appreciate the effort of handmade items, such as handmade soap, leather; and the list goes on.
The word "CRAFTS” entails handmade craft. Every place has its own cultural background and hence generates unique crafts. In Hong Kong, local handmade products appear to be few, even considered to be a sunset industry, but in fact with careful consideration, one can discover that local craft is still very much involved in our lives.
We are very grateful to the craft masters among all interviewees, as they generously shared the development of the craft and experience to us, it made us contemplate a significant amount. From their enthusiasm and dedication to their respective crafts, we were able to experience the beauty and significance of the craft. We sincerely admire their persistence, and feel pity for the slow disappearance of the craft.
