Thanks for this informative post. Perhaps many of us need to rethink their definition of artisan and extend it to the categories you have mentioned. The importance lays in the fact that such craftsperson is truly skilled in their field and will guarantee high quality products. In today’s globalized and digitalized world, it is important to add the third category, the knowledge artisans, as they are of crucial importance, which is proven by the increasing demand for them and their success. I agree with you that they form a noteworthy and crucial category of artisans, as they provide high quality intellectual and social products. As they already generate impressive revenues, I am sure we will hear and see more of them in the future.
