is it art?

here is a counter top that i made and installed at my job. it is made of copper, and i had to put an acid wash patina on it. it was alot of work, but it turned out beautifully.the homeowner had bought the sink and spigot without ever seeing the finished product and the color matched up nearly perfectly. but i don't think it's art.

If not, at least it's awfully damn close.
Good on you!

I believe that making anything from scratch is art, ie. sewing, carpentry, painting, building a house or machine, and making

I believe that making anything from scratch is art, ie. sewing, carpentry, painting, building a house or machine, sculpture, breeding new varieties of plants, and making BEAUTIFUL COPPER KITCHEN COUNTERS.

This kitchen must be drop-dead-gorgeous in person. I'm with Chris, fly west first and do my kitchen and bathrooms, and walls,..........well, you get the idea!!!!

Thanks, Tremble, for sharing your beautiful work with us.

As the others have said creativity comes in many forms. This is beautiful, and I would be very proud to have some of your work in my home What a lot of people don't realize is that we are surrounded by art; furniture design, dishes, towels.....etc. All of them came from one mind, and were created for the pleasure of others. Of course that does not compare to work that was done by hand by the artist. It is just an example.

i think there is a fine line between the artist and the craftsman... though i could be wrong...

Most of my house is art.

I paint walls, doors, make picture frames...

Like everyone else has said, if you make it , as far as I can see it's art.

I'm sure some would disagree but, I'd like to think that we could all consider our homes to be art, a reflection of us, or else it's sterile isn't it???

This is beautiful...

Well, of course it's art! now that it's installed, can you imagine this countertop being anyting but copper? it will only become more beautiful as it ages and wears.....add some lighting to highlight it, and snap some pics for your portfolio!
