Thanks yellow you are right and who knows? Maybe a female shoemaker!

Pumkin: funny you should mention a shoemaker; we now have a 3rd generation shoemaker in our town (he does esquisite work), but his children are 3 girls so who knows after he passes someday?

Robbie: this photo is priceless, there are no words except there is one handsome man obviously doing what he was intended to do (it shows), Thanks so very much for sharing it. :)))

Thank you all, craftsmen like this nice man are disappearing for sure. I like copper as well, Jenny keeps it shiny! Lela....out of stock! Jacques......stop your whining! PG and PPM, I agree. A shame PKH.

I have always admired fine craftsmanship. What a pleasure to see this picture.

Love to see people who can do such fine work with their hands. A lost art.

Love it :))

A man happy with his work. What a great picture.
We had a shoemaker in town years ago--many generations of shoemakers preceeded him. When he passed away, so did his craft.

Jenny and I bought some copper pots from him 9 years ago. We came back this year and bought another one. He took us around his workshop and showed us everything he made and his ancestors before him. He was making a bunch of these food bells for a big restaurant in the US. He beats them out of a single piece of copper which I will show next. We left him with a nice bottle of wine, so we were all happy!

A man rightfully proud of his work. Thanks Robbie.
