Creative expression is not limited to traditional art forms. Painters, sculptors, and musicians are not the only people who can express themselves creatively. People who work in what used to be familiar and traditional trades such as potters, blacksmiths, woodworkers, and glassblowers use their skills to create works of art.
Today these ‘tradespeople’ are artists in their own right. They use their knowledge and expertise to create objects that are both functional and beautiful. They are constantly pushing the boundaries of their craft, and they are always looking for new ways to express themselves.
Today our everyday tradespeople can develop and use their skills to create artfully, and bring a touch of joy to their work lives – and to ours.
The plumber who devises a way to drain your basement. The panel beater who makes your car smooth again. Even the kid who serves your coffee in a delightful way. People who work with their hearts and hands in a way that they’re not just creating objects. They are also creating a sense of community. They are sharing their skills with others, and they are inspiring others to be creative. They are showing us that creativity is not limited to a select few. It’s something that we can all experience.
Looking for way that people express themselves creatively. You might feel inspired and ready to bring a new touch of creativity to your world too.
