Maker vs. Artist

If you are reading this...are you a Maker vs. an Artist?
I think especially during the holiday season we are constantly face with this issue and I am curious how others address it....

  1. I'm both, I think. I like making stuff, and every so often I have some artistic insight. I tell you one thing though, I don't like cranking out work just to crank it out. I have to be inspired, motivated or something.

  2. When there's lots of time and i can just sit and muse and let the clay tell me how it's going to come out -- it's the artist in me speaking.
    When time is limited or rushed, the maker materializes, making bowls, etc., striving for symmetry.
