What is Craftsmanship?

What is Craftsmanship?

My simple definition… a skilled artistan whose quality of design and work shows in what is made. It’s a skill that is motivated by mastery and can often feel meditative to the artist. There is a passion for the work that is produced coupled with an attitude that believes this is important and as such so is the end value of the work. This is not a destination, but a long discipline.

I believe the word craftsmanship also fits into today’s tech world. Creating a design that can be integrated with the guidance of a technical computer operator is for me, yet another expression of the connectedness l believe in and often seen in my work. No way does this diminish the craftsmanship and design of my work. Combining a design with the mechanical skills of technology is a way of using a new tool to support my creativity. The efficiency technology affords me, allows me more time to develop new expressions.

In the end, craftsmanship is all about quality, passion and experience and a desire to produce a valuable work of art.
