When your house is littered with art that is beautiful and items that provide just vanity, it keeps the eye moving and holds interest. It’s another story when you also have fine art that can be used. When a guest can come over and sit in a chair made by an artist or drink out of a glass-blown cup. Here’s more about what functional fine art is and why you should own more of it.
What is Functional Fine Art?
Functional fine art is a piece of art that is both useful and beautiful. This can be a handcrafted wooden chair that has been made by an artist who carefully carves intricate details into the wood. The chair is just as beautiful and unique as it provides a function in your home.
Not only will you be the proud owner of a new piece of art, you are also supporting artists and their craft. When you buy something an artist makes, you show that you value their time and their work, and you also help them pay their bills. Artists love knowing that their pieces will be cherished and are going to a loving home.
Own More Unique Pieces
How many pieces of art can you say that you own? Of those, how many do you use on a regular basis? Owning pieces of art that you can use and adore through your use can enhance your connection and appreciation for the piece and the artist. Imagine hosting a dinner party and the table has beautiful hand carvings with ceramic dishes and mugs or glasses with interesting designs done by an artist. You can keep your guests in awe of your taste and they’ll likely want to go out and get some for themselves.
Quality of Life Increases
When you own pieces of art that you can also use, your quality of life increases as well. If you use your art in your daily life and don’t just save things for special occasions, you’re telling yourself that you’re special and don’t have to wait to use nice things. By incorporating more art into your day to day, your happiness through a tether to the art world is bound to increase.
This kind of art not only increases the value of your home, but it also goes to show your values as well. You help support artists, their craft, and you show what is important and interesting to you as well.
