This evening, I was at a friends house making some stuff, and doing a test firings for the larger pieces that I have been working on.. Anyway we started talking art..... and when you stick your head in the "art toilet" many different ideas come up about different artists and how nice their work is..... and then we talked a little about price.... What separates the artist from lets say, the hobbyist? My friend thought it was self esteem to be able to sell your work in the thousands. What I believe is- I really only need one person that believes in me,,,, When ya have that support you can conquer the art world.... Rejections and all!
Last year, for Pilchuck's annual auction I gave them a cast glass vessel... This year since they had a special jewelry section, I made them some jewelry.. Next year, I hope the glass school has another "special section" -but let it be something crazy... like basket weaving... I so would do it!
