Paper Artwork - a blend of art and craft

Dr Abe V Rotor

Colorful papers from leaflets, posters, magazines are made into baskets, lampshades, or just decors on the table or desk - an expression of art and craft.

They just lie there fading, and soon forgotten,
filling shelves courting fire and pest,
yet too good for the garbage, or the junk shop,
waiting for whose idea is put to test.  

the artist would on canvas his masterpiece,
the mentor's goal all but on the board;
and archives couldn't  hold on to value through time,
for waste the destiny of beauty untold.    

but greater waste talents are, hidden like gems
under heaps of riches and power,
too proud to take the road the least trodden by
where simple craft and art grow together. ~
