Craft vs. Fine art

As previously stated by many of my classmates, there is a scarily fine line between crafts and fine art. I believe that although some people think there is clear distinction, I think it is simply a matter of opinion.  Since craft is originated from the German word, kraft which means "power or ability", I determine craft as a work of art that has ability to be useful or used in a way rather then simply being appreciated as fine art. Crafts are created by people who have a particular skill commonly known as craftsman. The picture I chose is a picture frame made from stones. Although very nice and artistic looking, in my opinion this is considered a craft because it has the ability to contain and display a memory for anyone who chooses.
