Craft is an Art Form
Craft is so well known and accepted for anything done with your hands with a creative expression. The Americas have long seen and recognized the value of the art in crafts while in other centuries in Europe a craft seemed to be just like needed work as necessity to life.
Anything is a craft, baking a cake, crafting a saddle for your horse, weaving a basket, creating a beautiful image on fabric making cheeses. But these crafters are putting a great deal of honest and creative work into their projects that is has to be recognized as an art form.
Being a jeweler means to be creative and very skilled at the specific craft one is doing. A jeweler also designs new interesting good looking decorative and amazing presentations in order to attract a buyer and certainly someone to also wear this special piece of jewelry. This comes always down to that a craft person is an artist who displays a tremendous amount of creativity as well as skill where much learning and studying has been done before even showing to the public any work realized.
Our ancestors had to do everything themselves in order to survive. They had to craft all items that made them self sufficient as well as proficient at just about everything that is needed for living. They did not have stores or a mall around as we have today to buy all the lovely items that we no longer know how to do, to create and produce. We really have to admire our ancestors who were so able to craft beautifully designed clothing, furniture, elaborate cooking and baking products without being specialized in a craft doing only that craft. Today life has changed into every profession to have a specialist for each section of it, but do we still know to execute the whole spectrum of that profession.
We have to really understand how much knowledge will go into any ones craft specialty and recognize that a creative crafter is a creative artist as well as a craft person. Most craft persons are skilled enough to execute a number of different skills since these may be related to each other, the materials used will often have a variation of possible applications.
A soap maker first needs to meticulously know the process as well as all the materials that may be involved in this production. Without practice and skills no good soap can be produced. It has evolved into a lot of creative designs as well as mixtures of the materials to now a days produce something different all the time. Customers expect products, also in hand made soaps, to be of excellent quality and design. In hand made natural soaps one wants a product that is soothing to the skin and that the bar of soap will last longer than the commercially produced soap bars. And this kind of quality is called creative art and craft skills.
