50+ Epic Artisan Craft Pictures

As you guys know, I like to explore other mediums for inspiration (outside of the web). I think it is important to see things from another side, or things that are creative in a different way that you may not otherwise see, so today we explore the noble art of artisan crafts. These awesome items range from geeky girls jewelry all the way to paper and book art. Artisan crafts really encompass a lot of things that can also be considered a part of their own medium – such as oragami, book art, almost any hand made creative objects, wood art, props for cosplay, custom machines and gadgets, crafts (duh), food art, etc. (If you couldn’t tell I really like creative crafty type things haha) There is also some really nice object photography here as well. Lets dive into the actual definition of an artisan to get a better idea of this medium, shall we?

What Are Artisan Crafts?

Our old scholarly gentleman friend, wikipedia, will surely give us an artisan definition.

An artisan or artizan (from Italian: artigiano) or craftsman (craftsperson) is a skilled manual worker who makes items that may be functional or strictly decorative, including furniture, sculpture, clothing, jewellery, household items, and tools or even machines such as the handmade devices of a watchmaker. An artisan is therefore a person engaged in or occupied by the practice of a craft, who may through experience and talent reach the expressive levels of an art in their work and what they create.

The adjective “artisanal” is sometimes used in describing hand-processing in what is usually viewed as an industrial process, such as in the phrase artisanal mining. Thus, “artisanal” is sometimes used in marketing and advertising as a buzz word to describe or imply some relation with the crafting of handmade food products, such as bread, beverages, or cheese. Many of these have traditionally been handmade, rural, or pastoral goods but are also now commonly made on a larger scale with automated mechanization in factories and other industrial areas.

Artisans were the dominant producers of consumer products prior to the Industrial Revolution. According to classical economics theory, the division of labour occurs with internal market development (Adam Smith). However, according to economist John Hicks, merchants and artisans originated as servants to the rulers, which occurred much earlier.

Good ole Artisans! Thanks Artisans for putting more creativity into the world! In honor of these great craftsman, today we showcase some great Artisans and some of their epic hand-made masterpieces! Whatever you are working on, I am sure there is something here to give you an idea – or inspire you! Perhaps these tangible objects will inspire web designers or even print designers to take up a hobby creating some type of craft, or even a machine! Something you can reach out and touch – thinking about making those things really inspires me, even though It is hard to find the time to sit down and do it! I hope you all Enjoy!
