crafts vs. fine arts

There's a very thin line between craft and art. Take these two pictures for example. The one on the left is a one of a kind piece done by an art student (i think), meanwhile the one on the right is the Regina gown by Maggie Sottero. Many say that to distinguish between the two, one rationalizes that a craft can be mass produced while a fine art can only be made once. However, I believe both are distinguished arts. I believe that it all pertains to how the viewer sees things. I believe in the saying that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." I also happen to love the Regina gown, while others may see it as hideous and prefer a different style for a wedding dress. I also love the watercolor work on the left because it's beautiful. Other may see it as a big mess done with watercolors, assuming that they just plain hate watercolor works.
