It’s hard to believe that I began teaching seven years ago. After a serious shoulder injury in 2007 that my doctor explained would take me out of my studio practice for a year, and then a divorce a year and a half later, my tempo had slowed enough for me to pursue teaching. It’s been a wonderful experience. I am now at a place where I will be returning to my production work again. It is interesting to note how when I talk to my colleagues in the industry and my absence from it, they all say that if there was a time for me to be out of my production work, this was the time.
The market for handmade has been completely transformed. Galleries closed, shows that were a mainstay went away as inline selling has gone through continual gyrations as the market continues to change.
In the midst of this change, it seemed good idea to consider a re-branding of my glass business. So far, this is the new logo I have been working on.
