Is it craft, is it art?
Take sewing for example- right now I have hanging in the store custom made and sewn vintage ladies dresses from the 50's and baby clothes and christening gowns that are even older than mid century. The craftsmanship and care that have gone into the pieces scream "work of art" to me but they are simply regarded as apparel to most people. I will confess most of my sewing is more of the crafty variety- here are two items I recently finished for clients. The first is a wedding gift for a couple that was combining households (including kids!). Instead of doing the traditional wedding invitation application I used a family candid from the wedding.
