« Work a piece of wood and it will no longer be a piece of wood. »
The Indo-European root "ar-" means "adjustment". This is found in several words like artist or artisan who can be considered as two "adjustors". They have in common to show patience and resources in their respective art. If we often give as much importance to the artist as to his work, the craftsman may tend to withdraw in front of his achievements. As a craftsman, I gladly step aside in front of the admiration that arouses my achievements, which have required hours of adjustment, patience and resources.
