First of all, Congratulations for two years now in the LJ.

My opinion.. Craftsman pertains to skills in doing the job. For example a good sculptor, carver, etc. but not his idea or original design. Some of the Craftsman can copy a lot of work better than the original one. Artist is the one who think, design, and gives the impact to the viewers. Some instances, the artist sketch only but not doing an actual model or prototype… he needs a craftsman to do it for him. However, it does not limit each one that he can be the same guy… the artist and craftsman. If you made your own original design that will be worth expensive as you will be called the artist and craftsman (but you need to be good at it). If you buy a Sam Maloof original chair, it will be expensive than buying from a craftsman who had made (even with good quality wood or better than Sam) will again be lower priced than the original.
