HANDS BEHIND THE WHEEL

Skilled hands bring
lambs wool to yarn.

Shear and comb,
then dye in shades
your color's choice.

The caring touch and feel
of a spinner's wheel,
pedaling beauty by the
ball and skein.

  1. It's nice to see these works again. In this era of industrialization we forget how to do the basics.

  2. Ces métiers d’antan ne vivent que par le savoir-faire humain. En France, nous avons souvent l'occasion de les voir lors de festivals sur les métiers d'antan.
    Tes photos sont magnifique et la lumière, sublime !
