About Inspiring Story of the Talented Chinese Disabled Craftsman: Heping Peng
* Heping is weaving bueatiful mats with corn husks * The newspaper made a comprehensive report of his Inspiring Story
As one of the first members of Chilture Studio of Disabled Artists, Heping Peng is a deaf and physically disabled peasant farmer living a cave room in a remote village of Shanxi Province in China. In addition to being a talented craftsman of corn-husk woven mats, Master Pent is a big fan of literature subscribing to, reading and contributing to several magazines and newspapers on a regular basis for years and lives on the incomes from one third hectare of farmland.
Master Peng got deaf when he was 12 years old during a medical accident to treat his fever. Misery loves company. Soon after that, his right leg got a serious sore and the poor family had not enough money to have him cured and he ended up as a lame person. He has since quit school, working on the field in day time and reading books at night.
When Chilture’s team first paid a visit to Master Peng, they found in amazement piles of books, newspapers, magazines scattered on his bed. They wrote on paper to communicate on matters from Chinese history, literature to politics and economy. Master Peng’s profound thoughts on all these fields impressed the team a lot, considering he’s been confined to the overlooked mountain village for nearly fifty years. He wrote: “Green should and will be the theme of future economy ofChina; otherwise the booming Chinese economy can’t go far.”
However, literature never brings him money and the farmland incomes are meager, he decided to learn a skill to make a living. After several times of walking to a craftsman in a town dozens of miles away from his own over twenty years ago, he was finally apprenticed to learn weaving mats from corn husks, which simply turned out to be lacking a significant regular customer base in rural parts of China. So fat has left Heping living in a cave room alone. But Mr. Peng wrote: “I don’t believe in fate. I‘ll keep honing my skills and I believe people out there somewhere will someday appreciate my crafts, which are natural, pollution-free and environment-friendly, being entirely handmade (from husks of corn), intricately woven, with personalized designs and patterns (custom sizes also available), designed to meet various customers’ life and work circumstances.” Master Peng does have a sharp eye.
