Artist/Craftsperson

Artists are usually divided into fine artists and applied artists. While the nature and aesthetic value of what an artist produces is the subject of debate, an artist is somebody who creates art. As a fine artist, one would create paintings, sculptures, prints, or other artwork that is visually pleasing. An applied artist designs and makes things that serve a practical purpose, i.e. ceramics, jewelry and pottery.
