Artist vs. Artisan

An artist creates works that may not be appreciated during life, or ever.

An artisan produces things that work, and that are immediately useful.

Clearly, in a society that values things, it is safer to be an artisan than an artist.

William's Whimsical Words:

Perhaps we should all be artesians, and just be well.
