Changing art rarity isn't as easy as it seems because the game picks a base type first and then "boosts" it into an artefact. One of the reasons you see the same arts so often is because their base type is common.

For example, boosting the heck out of ringil will make it very likely that it will be the first mithril longsword you find, but it won't help you find that first mithril longsword any faster than normal. (I think -- I could be wrong, it's been awhile since I looked at gen.)
