A quiet hush has fallen over Seraphim Studio's Blog...
Artist vs. Crafter
In the mid 60's something began to happen in history.
Women began to fight for equality...
it was quiet at first
then it grew louder
At one time an Artist was a man..
it was that simple.
Artistry was a gender based profession.
Women who knit or sewed were simply using their life skills
quilts were something needed in the home for warmth
as were sweaters and socks
Drawing was something you simply did as a doodle
to kill time with the children
Making teddy bears was something done in factories to make money
pre World War II
Or you made them to comfort your child
A teddy bear maker an artist?
Does the simple fact that we have been sewing for generations
give us the skills required to deem the title
You bet it does!!!
My latest ... not totally finished but close to being finished... very happy with this new cupcake size mini!
