Fingertip Precision, Working Hands by EarthHart Fingertip Precision, Working Hands by EarthHart
The potter creates a candle holder.
I'm starting a series "Working Hands", looking at country crafts, to end with an exhibition where there will be portraits of the craft folk involved. Maybe a competition, putting the faces to the hands, who knows?

This was taken at a friends "Lughnasadh Craft Fair", at the weekend, where a number of crafts were on show. Sadly the weather was very poor, rain showers all weekend. Still, those that came enjoyed the space and the host, who'll you see later. He's said that it'll be an annual event.

Lughnasadh is the Celtic festival for the beginning of the harvest.

Edit: Jan 5th. 2014. Many thanks to Jinn :iconjinnger: & 1Pen :icon1pen: for suggesting & featuring it :ahoy::rose:

:rage: Now see the hands of the working man
He's leaning back against the wall
Once busy hands are idle now
Standing ready for the fall! Our fall!

The signs will come as days past by
For those that claim to see
The blind will stay not choosing to die
Not believing the visions I've seen

Warning! ... WARNING!!


Lyrics were prophetic!

Hopefully there'll be many more to come. I'm going to see a Blacksmith, at his forge, when the floods have reseeded.
