Is it the role of a craftsman to be innovative?
A craftsman is a person who excel in his field but is never satisfied of it. He is implicated and concerned by every step of his work in aim to do it the best he could. Strong values or stories lead him to executing with passion and respect what his specific task is.
But is that a situation which should be called static? As much as he masters a certain field, shouldn't he be in charge of the evolution of his art too? How far could that be applied to an "innovative state of mind"?
Are you a craftsman? Do you see yourself as a craftsman? How do you see your responsibilities? Would you call those "responsibilities"?...
