Craft artists use a variety of materials and techniques to create art for sale and exhibition. They create handmade objects, such as pottery, glassware, textiles, or other objects that are usually designed to be functional, but sometimes the original works of art have only aesthetic value rather than a functional one.

Karen Arrese is a Craft Artist

I am a calligrapher. My business has taken many forms from designing envelopes for invitations to creating personal stationery and note pads. I loved learning the art. I began by learning 4 basic, traditional styles. Calligraphy, like many art forms, is in the hands and mind of the artist. I enjoy modifying styles to suit the aesthetics of my projects. I enjoy new creations much more than repeatedly addressing envelopes so I have taken my business in that direction. I design stationary and notepads with literary quotes and alphabetic initials. I print many copies, package them at home and sell them locally. Calligraphy is a beautiful ancient art form that I love to practice and share.

Katlego Ledimo was a Craft Artist

I was free. I was my own boss and I served people. I made no money at all but the smiles on the faces of customers was my reward.
