Functional Art

Before you shop for art, determine your goal.

Are you buying it for enjoyment? Is it for investment value and future sale? Are you building a private collection? Do you create your own art?

Functional art goes beyond the aesthetic of two-dimensional visual art because it is useful. The utilitarian is elevated to the beautiful.

Crafted by artisans, functional art includes mosaics, tapestries, area rugs, a sculptural fountain, stained glass and pottery, with many, many more expressions of creativity that are useful in the very day – where useful includes the functional, emotional, mental, physical, spiritual and beyond.

Hopefully great art will transport us!

Beautiful architecture is a fine example of functional art.

I hope you enjoy this! I loved writing it.
