Virtually everything made by man which you can see and use is the work of Artisans. It is the nature of the Artisan to express themselves through the invention, creation, manufacture, repair, and manipulation of thing. These can be artistic masterpieces, technological crafts, or mechanical devices.
Artisans are impelled to make things. They get restless if they do not create something tangible. It is their nature to produce physical objects. They generate an idea, and from within themselves they spew it out into material reality. They take the raw material in their hands and fashion it into things of beauty or function.
Artisans are technicians in whatever they do. When and wherever there is something that needs to be made, there is an Artisan – ready, willing, and able to make it. Whatever occupation an Artisan finds themselves in, they will always apply a high degree of skill and expertise to it.
Artisans prefer to be acknowledged or remembered for their work. In effect they say, “Here, look at this thing, not at me. See what I made. I am not of consequence, except to the extent that I have created this thing of beauty and usefulness.” They live to make something tangible and permanent which will outlive themselves.
Often Artisans will copy something in their arts or engineering that they see in nature. It also means that an Artisan views the universe as an object which it is their job to mould, form, and fashion into a work of beauty or function. This is certainly something that Artisans do. In another sense, it means that Artisans see themselves as creations of the universe, rather than creators of themselves.
Artisans are often the moodiest of the roles. In a depressed state, an Artisan can join a gathering of people and be like an ominous cloud that blocks the sun, leaving everyone affected by the shadow. Conversely, a joyous Artisan can almost instantly change a roomful of sour dispositions with the magical quality of a rose that blooms in the snow; altering the ambience of the room with enthusiasm and good cheer. Artisans can literally influence the ambient area around them, and it seems their creative energy is not only contained to their inner worlds, but to the outer one as well. The moody Artisan is also the most likely candidate for being the craziest of all the roles.
Whether as artists, writers, actors, craftsman, engineers, composers, surgeons, carpenters, philosophers, or master welders, or indeed Locksmiths Artisans can make almost anything a canvas for their creative explorations, and in their own unique and inventive way, their inspiration and creativity makes the world a better place.
