ABSTRACT

In this essay, I suggest a divisionist solution for the dilemma of the crafts depending on Bruce Metcalf. He insists the use, the mastery, the materiality, the inter-reference as the factors of the identification with the crafts. He connects the canons of the crafts to the decanonized compatibly. Crafts provoke us the expanded aesthetic pleasure in the formal, the sensual, the cognitive, the moral, the political aspect, as well as the utilitarian use. Crafts are different species from fine arts. Crafts have the different history and evaluative criteria from fine arts in the divisionist aesthetics. The variability, the aesthetic contingence, the adhesion to ordinary life, and the communication is the positive aesthetic quality of the crafts.
