i think they see some of the expensive things as "art" and the less expensive things as "crafts". someone once asked me if i do art or crafts and they said craft with such a nasty tone. i just said "i guess most would say i do crafts and i own that. and i still would venture its something not everyone can do." i was very bold at that moment, but other times i shrink and think oh, well i can only dream of being an artist.
