fine art - vs - craft

I don't know a theory that exists on the seperation between Fine Arts and
Applied Crafts, and I am weary of the endless debate. But I did find a
statement in the Artforms book which is the best summation of this
seemingly endless battle It goes as such:

When art is inspired by personal vision and craft is the technique that
brings the vision into being then art and craft are one. ---

Sounds good to me
