The paradigm for these types of verbs usually employs the conveyant case
for the thing undergoing creation or transformation, and the receptive
case for the final product. Examples:
create: creator(org/instr), created thing(cvy)
make/build: builder(org/instr), raw materials(cvy), building(rcp)
(you could understand these verbs to mean "mold X into Y")
sculpt: sculptor(org), material(cvy), sculpture(rcp)
People tell me I'm stubborn, but I refuse to accept it!
