craft media

We discussed the craft media as objects that are usually functional as opposed to fine art objects. A fine art object might be a sculpture or a watercolor painting. These objects do not serve any useful purpose that might be connected to our everyday activities. In this chapter, such items as silverware, drapery, bowls, etc. yet in the hands of a fine artist, we might consider these same objects as works of art.

 

When does a craft object become a work of art? Give an example.
