Re: crafting art, arting craft

You're right, but I think it also has to do with practice more than
attitude. It has to do with an understanding of sound/appropriate structure,
knowledge of materials... I think it comes down to expectations, but that
could just be me. On some level though, I suppose most structures are
appropriate... maybe.
