The reason why this blog launches impose position that a recent find.
Specifically, professionalized am working on this beautiful technique, marquetry, and founded Atelier artistic craft “Marquetry Design”.

A special state commission of the Ministry of Finance and Economy, in my home and workshop, has estimated that my craft work to the criteria of artistic craftsmanship, so I got the official government certificate.

However, in my community, given the entrepreneurial position, such a certificate means little, because I have almost no benefits, tax benefits, or promotional privileges. Although we have some knowledge to other countries old and artistic crafts as part of the cultural and artistic heritage will be protected in many ways!

I would like to ask everyone, all dear friends, and my request with this blog presented that way your state protect, conserve and advance the area of the old and traditional art&crafts.

What legal measures, what kind tax cuts, what institutional solutions or projects?

Your experience will be valuable to me in an effort to my mid-state institutions, through professional associations craft characterizes a rational and functional solution.

In advance I thank you all ..

Of course, I hope that I will not find fault with the bad English ..

I don’t know how the United States protect, conserve and advance the area of the old and traditional art&crafts. It probably through copyright of original artistic works.

You could use your certificate as a marketing tool. Some folks would be more willing to pay for more expensive artistic works if you can prove that they are done in hundreds of year’s old traditional ways. So, get a good copy made of the certificate and display it in your workshop, another copy at art shows and craft fairs where your works will be displayed and sold. Put a scanned copy on your web site.
