fine art vs. craft
Fine art and craft can have the same meaning to some. For example, the picture shown is a type of craft because it uses a set of skills to create their artwork. But I also see these crafts as fine art because they possess a type of beauty. Especially a craft such as glassblowing, not any piece is the same because the glass or colors may work differently; which makes them beautifully unique. The differences I see with fine art and crafts is that fine art tends to be more expensive and crafts are handmade and less expensive. Either way, I think that crafts should be considered fine arts also because they have unique qualities.
