Many people always consider what the difference is between a craft and fine art. To me, the difference is based on the person and their views. If someone sees an amazing piece of jewelry that takes their breath away and is amazed at the detail of the work then to them it can be considered fine art, along with a famous sculpture such as The Pieta, pictured above. I think they are treated differently because people see fine art as a piece of art that has a statement and is possibly historic and expensive, where crafts can be found at an art store like Michaels or A.C. Moore. I think people determine themselves what they consider to be fine art and crafts based on how they feel about certain objects and meanings. A person can view a fine art and get the same feeling as seeing a craft someone created and realizing that both pieces say something to the viewer and have meaning and boldness.
