Gorgeous, both the finished project and and process itself.
There’s something lovely about a craftsman, if you’ve ever just sat and watched one. Aged hands with surprising grace and dexterity from years of use. They grasps things differently. Watch them. The touch is a different thing, it’s tuned and refined and the interface between flesh and material is so pure and seamless. When working with tools or simply touching a surface the fingers know exactly where to stop and how to move. It’s practice of course – sheer repetition – but there’s something that falls short if you describe it like that. My appreciation for it is so much deeper and more subtle than that.
And it doesn’t matter if the above paragraph is read about man or machine, there’s a beauty to each. An outcome that boggles my mind even as I’ve seen it happen so many times. A fascination, I guess, with process.
Look! More awesome posts:
