With development traditional craftsmanship has gradually disappeared, replaced by automatic machines. This is true in the village of Tru Son in Nghe An Province, central Vietnam. Clay pots were handcrafted entirely by a turntable, a few small rags, and thin slices of bamboo. These old craftsmen were the last artisans to stick with this traditional profession.

In the realm of visual storytelling, a splendid fine-art print emerges, showcasing a photograph that encapsulates the essence of Tru Son village in Nghe An Province, central Vietnam. The print unravels a narrative woven with the threads of tradition and the fading echoes of craftsmanship.

The focus of the image is a delicate dance of hands, weathered by time, skillfully shaping clay pots. In this village, a sanctuary of tradition, the craft of pottery perseveres through the touch of a turntable, a few modest rags, and slender slices of bamboo. These artifacts of manual dexterity evoke a poignant tribute to a fading era where hands, not machines, brought clay to life.
