Dr. Carol Ventura, professor of art at Tennessee Technological University, maintains a website that focuses on her research of traditional arts and crafts in The Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe.
She shares an extensive collection of crafts, each with its own set of process shots of the skilled craftspeople at work, with descriptions of each step beneath the image. Many of the crafts are location-specific: Spanish ceramics from Talavera de la Reina, Chinese cloisonné enameling, Asanti Kente cloth weaving, Japanese katazome stencil dyeing, Balinese horn carving, and Guatemalan glass blowing (pictured above), to name a few.
What stories she must have, from all of her travel and research!

    a few of the images aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
