The Soul of Tru Son Village

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.
