Art and Craft

"Architects, (Engineers), painters, sculptors, we must all return to crafts! For there is no such thing as 'professional art'. There is no essential difference between the artist and the craftsman. The artist is an exalted craftsman. By the grace of Heaven and in rare moments of inspiration which transcend the will, art may unconsciously blossom from the labour of his hand, but a base in handicrafts is essential to every artist. It is there that the original source of creativity lies." -Walter Gropius
