Alexander is a professional craftsman, he cuts from wood some traditional Russian household items of the 17-19 centuries.

It is commonly believed that handicraft disappears when it loses commercial significance. Obviously, after introduction of industrial manufacturing, handicraft has moved to the backstage, but nowadays there are still people who choose craftsmanship as a lifestyle. Moreover, they also have followers willing to learn from them and consumers who buy their products. Despite that it is hard to make a good living with traditional handicraft, craftsmen still do their job – for them, this activity is a core national tradition and part of national identity.
