Starting with co-molded wheels

Born in the village, do not live in the village but Le Van Khang by artists attending the School of Hanoi - the people who train professional casting and metallurgy, he has more advantages compared to others turned to the profession as "over the" (a type of cast bronze, but is using a hammer and hit "end" to make up the product).

Le Van Khang artists alongside the products of the scenic Hanoi.
The first product he was "finished" is the same old wheels. He said: "A piece of the village not ready with a kitchen corner. Formerly, go to any village, the home owner who would be invited to eat the calf wheel, feel very appreciated, homeowners also use it as the engine, it takes much. Especially the wedding procession that used to wheel the red team, offering the very formal. Now, people do not use the wheel to try again to a routine, a traditional beauty associated with people's lives so no longer, because the wheel is not more popular with alloy wheels, wood wheels again. The reason for the change is because the wheels from the feudal air is usually three wheels (black copper, gold, silver) very seriously, when oxidized, the bad and even harmful to people at right, keep it tight in the seat so many people throw away or sell for scrap. Seeing waste too, I run out to buy the "end" of the artwork as your foursome Tung, Chrysanthemum, Bamboo, Plum noble Long, Ly, Quy, Phuong or miniatures Fisheries Section, the drum same pattern with very beautiful patterns ... At the same time, solve employment for many villages. "


Not just "end" of the old wheels, Le Van Khang artisans also cast a series of portraits of celebrities, famous physician, famous generals, the ancestors of the individual associated with the Thang Long or cultural events Typical of history such as Ly Cong Uan, Le Loi, Hai Thuong Lan Ong Le Huu Trac, Ton That Tung, Ho Dac Di, Phan Boi Chau ... to General Vo Nguyen Giap, Vo Thi Sau heroine. He also was appointed as the bust of Uncle Ho 1.6 m high located in the Government Office. Uncle statue theme Hung Kings had the water, Uncle I have to keep the country together weighing 2.5 tons was exhibited at the Museum of Phu Tho, the owner of the 20 statues of famous people of different Museum of Fine Arts in Vietnam. He also cast Adida Buddha 7th cleared natural color set in Dalat Truc Lam, the Guan Yin thousand arms, thousand eyes Essence award-winning Vietnam's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. In particular, he is the author of the Ngoc Lu bronze drums are currently stored at the Ngoc Lu village (Binh Luc district, Ha Nam province). The reason he was given this honor because of the French colonial period, after the Ngoc Lu bronze drum discovered was the power of Henan mission to service the village of Ngoc Lu drum bearing and low cap on contributions to the game Magic Hanoi November 15, 1902, then was bought for $ 550 the same, people from the village of Ngoc Lu lose it extremely flexible gas regret ... After this, knowing the account name of artist Le Van Khang, local authorities have to contact, invited him to "come" a Ngoc Lu bronze drum, drum ceremony also welcomed the settlement in order for people to admire , find the idea of ​​a gas components formerly been buried in the village land.


He was also shocking to everyone in Show Business enterprises in Hanoi with Thai pomelo Bach statue because the statue was a White House commendation tool is the most soulful, like most tools. When making this statue, artisan Le Van Khang worried because in the hands of only a photograph of the late businessman Bach Thai pomelo. He had to close the main inquiries, collecting data on the White Thai Pomelo from various sources to find the "mental state" character and then to the soul through the complex stages.


"Assimilation" scenic Hanoi


Currently, the artist Le Van Khang is urgently for a series of products baked on the beauty, landscape, such as Turtle Tower of Hanoi, Hanoi flag pole, Khue Van Cac, One Pillar Pagoda, turtles suck precious sword, turtle team epitaph ... Mr. Kang said, the reason he made this series is so scenic express cultural quintessence of Hanoi, but because many operators have not seen anyone so he decided to "cast" all the places with beautiful scene of the products as souvenirs for tourists from everywhere celebration of 1,000 years of Thang Long. The remarkable thing is that all he did was the product are very small. He explained that: "Visitors to Hanoi to travel and not going to spend money and then" lifting "statue on, especially foreign tourists. They will be quite inconvenient and freight cost if purchased the statue was too big. I obtained her back to products more convenient for travelers in their choices. Scaled down, a person can buy dozens of different products, take a lightweight, give to friends and proud that I was the 1,000 years of Thang Long - Hanoi ".


Before the question between periods only place left very few people, of which he also employed the same voice artist Le Van Khang deep down: Employment contracts are now faded and nothing is confusing. First, the value for "climb in gold prices." We do the work, refine this, a good pruning each product according to the traditional manual, but to society as product sales should not be higher wages. When income is not steady itself in the family as children, grandchildren see it also "discourage" the fire did not dare keep, what to do vocational training. Professional reason why the artist gradually absent in Hanoi land because the spread of imported items, the cheap fake sold on the market spread.


Normally, the "completion contract" is used to touch and hammer, "close" to the product to create the idea of ​​individual artists. But the artist Le Van Khang, he not only use traditional methods of casting bronze casting, but also combined with many different art forms such as the traditional end to the modern industrial, bronze casting combined with operating carving, painting ... The type that when combined together in harmony with each other will freeze, causing sublimation of love, passion, creativity does not stop to reach a prescribed standard in each work, through financial hands Flower of the artists began turning this ancient rare.


Mr. Le Van Khang is Hanoi People's Committee in 2003 awarded the Artisan.
