Artisan or Crafter?

I find myself lately caught between two different categories. This may be a stupid question, but what is the difference between an Artisan and a Crafter. I paint glass, crystal and porcelain. All of my work is original. I don't make my own vessels that I paint, But I choose these items to paint on rather than a cavas. My items have sold between $15.00 and $125.00. All are signed and dated. I don't mass produce my products. I don't use a pattern. I just pick up a brush and start painting. So I'm getting mixed reviews as to what I really am. I've had craft promoters tell me I should do art shows and art shows tell me I should do craft shows.
