Craft vs. Art: The Great Debate

 

I think there is an elitist view on the part of both art and craft people that suggests a failure to be curious about differing perspectives. Identifying with a single view is limiting... If we are able to view craft and art as a part of a continuum, and if we can allow self-placement on the continuum, then we will take ourselves out of the power struggle. Staying curious will automatically create opportunities for learning and for resonance with others. It will not matter if we are artists or craftsmen. After all, our creativity comes from the same source, doesn't it?

Art strives to express; craft strives for excellence. Good art has good craft, good craft is artistic.

Within every craft there exists artists. Within every artist there is craft. 

The items on the Arts & Crafts pages are not for sale.

I use these pages as a visual record of things I’ve done... just for fun.

Art strives to express; craft strives for excellence. Good art has good craft, good craft is artistic.

Within every craft there exists artists. Within every artist there is craft.
