the marvels of hand-crafting

Usually when I watch videos from Liziqi's channel I marvel at the handcraft and the natural beauty, and how soothing it all is. This time I was struck by just how time-consuming everything is when you can't get machines to do it for you. And yes, the result is beautiful and sturdy and no doubt deeply satisfying to use, but still--there is a luxury to it, to having the materials and time to create instead of simply buy.

Though I speak as one who could at least approximate similar projects if I really wanted and was willing to stop spending my time on things like blogging regularly. :P
