(HBO) – The Lam Son driftwood and ornamental stone craft village is located in Doan Ket hamlet along National Highway 6, very close to the headquarters of the People's Committee of Lam Son Commune. The local production facilities put on display a series of their handmade products of impressive beauty.

Doan Xuan Thanh, the head of the craft village, introduces local fine art crafts.

The crafting of driftwood and ornamental stone has been practiced in Lam Son commune, Luong Son district, since 1994. After nearly 30 years of development, the local production scale has significantly expanded, with products increasingly diversified and quality improved, meeting the demand from customers. In 2017, the locality was recognised by the provincial People's Committee as a craft village of driftwood sculptures and ornamental stone.

The workshop of Doan Xuan Thanh, the head of the craft village, now has three veteran artisans directly engaging in the production of such products as tables, chairs, and mythical and sacred animals. The facility has so far supplied the market with hundreds of items, many of which are made from valuable wood and boast high value in terms of fine art.

According to Thanh, Lam Son is endowed with favourable conditions to develop the handicraft. Since its recognition, the craft village has made a large number of products serving the market. As the pandemic subsides, its operation is gradually recovering.

Thanh’s workshop is among many other large-scale ones in the locality, including those managed by Le Huy Son, Tran Xuan The, and Tran Duy Minh. Out of driftwood, they sculpt statues of gods, animals, and trees, among other shapes. To date, the number of local skilled artisans has amounted to over 100.

The products have been frequently brought to trade fairs in the northern provinces of Hai Duong, Nam Dinh, and Ha Nam, and Hai Phong city as well as a number of others in the southern region. They have so far affirmed their position in the market, contributing to the local sustainable economic restructuring process./.
