“If you work with your hands you are a laborer ”
” If you work with your hands and mind you are a Craftsman “
” If you work with your hands , mind and heart you are an Artist.”
This is why I always call myself a woodworker never an Artist. It is difficult to envoke feelings from furniture. I have love when I make my creations , but I can never show love in a piece of furniture like an artist that paints a two dimensional canvas say of Mother and child . The technical aspect and rules of joinery dictate the way we show our heart to the world . This is why I say I am not an artist but a Woodworker I know alot of artist but I am just a woodworker. It’s also a humbling feeling to be grounded to say I am a craftsman who works with things from Mother nature.
