I've just found these quotes..

...they have helped me with my question.. 'Am I an artist or craft person?' 
......... leaning more and more towards craft.

Edmund de Waal

'Craft is a starting place, a set of possibilities.
It avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace.
It offers places, interstices, where objects and people meet.
It is unstable, contingent.
It is about experience. It is about desire.
It can be beautiful.'


Rosy Greenlees
Director, Crafts Council

'Contemporary craft is about making things.  It is an intellectual and physical activity where the maker explores the infinite possibilities of materials and processes to produce unique objects. To see craft is to enter a world of wonderful things which can be challenging, beautiful, sometimes useful, tactile, extraordinary; and to understand and enjoy the energy and care which has gone into their making.'

  1. I think craft and art can be hard to define. The quotes definitely describe craft, however
    could also be used to describe art. LOL...I know, I'm totally confusing the issue, no?
