When does an object move from craft to fine craft or art? It's a blurry line at times. Fine crafts are usually defined by the high level of skill required to produce them, original/innovative design and beauty. Craftsmen who produce at this level spend years perfecting their work.
Pottery, glass work, art jewelry and other media make up the large world of fine craft. In the gallery, we also include leatherwork, Native American Crafts and woodwork. These pieces reflect the artistic talents of their makers. The intricate scrolls and craftsmanship of a fine saddle is just as much a work of art as any other media.
Tallgrass Art Gallery is proud to represent several fine craftspeople who continuously strive to produce better and more beautiful works.
