About Arts and Crafts

Art and crafts was a movement established in the 19th century that focused on design reform based on the concept that visual arts are spatial rather than temporal. In the art of painting, space is an illusion, a representation of three dimensions in two. Sculpture, however, can use three dimensions to represent three dimensions, and is best experienced from a moving vantage point. Architecture, also being three-dimensional, defines and orders spaces in order to make them suitable for human activities. Another premise of the movement is that the physical materials used by artists influence the properties and the character of the resulting work. In other words, great art must be in harmony with its medium.
