In the today’s blog post, I will be writing about how crafts are used in professions.
If you have been following the blog post, you will notice that craft is such a broad field of human endeavour. I will have you know that there is an element of craft embedded in every profession. With knowledge of this in mind, I will be writing about Craft in three different profession namely: Food Art, Jewelry Making and Wood work.
FOOD ART: Food art is the art of preparing, cooking and presenting food in the most creative ways. The idea of food art probably popped up due to the amalgamation of varied food cultures making way for creative uses of different ingredients and foods.
Food art has a lot to do with mixing and matching and creating new wonders with different foods. Food art is a craft that requires skill. Examples include:
JEWELRY MAKING: Jewelry Making is the production of artistic articles (personal ornaments, everyday articles, religious articles, weapons) primarily from precious metals (gold, silver, and platinum) but also from certain other nonferrous metals, frequently in combination with precious and semiprecious stones, pearls, glass, amber, mother-of-pearl, ivory, and similar materials. Various techniques are used in jewelry-making which requires the use of craft.
WOOD WORK: Wood work is an activity or skill that required making items from wood, and includes cabinet making (cabinetry and furniture), wood carving, joinery, carpentry, and woodturning. Every creation in wood work is skillfully crafted to serve an intended purpose. Below are some images of some beautifully crafted Wood Work.
