Thanks Ann, for that note. I'll check too, but maybe that's the reason it's never been asked of me. Since I know I can't know everything anyway, I have absolutely no interest in getting to knowing things I hate! Ouch. That hurt my brain. :D

Hi Alice, I DO NOT do an inventory at the end of the year. I have never been asked to in the past. Maybe this is an error. I use all of my materials fairly fast, so there is not much carry-over anyway. And how do you inventory tupperwares full of scrap? It's pretty much frit foder, and that's it. I'...

Hi Alice, My husband Brian writes software, so naturally I have more than I need. I use the direct method of accounting and inventory to keep things simple. Basically, I pay as I go and try not to let things go unpaid from one fiscal year to the next, just to keep things straight. I do not do an inv...

Can you go wrong quoting Cher? By the sound of your personal interest and feeling about your new projects Cynthia, I'm surprised you're feeling like you're "stalled". Maybe you're just working things out in your head toward preparation. Sounds like a great direction. Did you know that there will be ...

Hey Cynthia! Thank you for that nice posting!. I can't imagine you stalled for any reason. Ok, I guess I do understand... I know if I don't have a deadline coming up I really stall. Maybe the trick is to overbook yourself. Nothing like a good dose of panic to get the creative juices flowing! Hey, ha...

Hi Barbara, I agree that Chihuly is a genius in more ways than glass. Thanks for that insight. It makes me alot less annoyed at his copycats to think he not only doesn't care--he had hoped for it. It is very counter-intuitive. But I'm an old territorial dog, if you hadn't noticed already! :D

Monkey Business

Hi All! It's been requested that I talk about my experiences in the business end of promoting my work, stemming from my applying for a patent on my technique. Now that I'm on the spot I may have to think here for a minute.... First off I guess there is an attitude about what you're doing--not the ar...

Hi Phil, Don't laugh, but I filed for my own patent. So far I've paid $375+time. What it's gotten me so far is a nice 5 page article in Glass Craftsman mag, lots of publicity and interest, and a lively dialog. My "tag" line at shows is a big sign that reads "Award Winning, Patent Pending, Sewn Glass...

Okay, okay. One last quick note and I'm getting back to the kiln! Hey Diane, I've been thinking the same thing on a gut level. I've really pushed hard and spent a lot of dough on advertising and driving across country to shows that I thought I should be at. I did have the foresight to request my app...

Hi! I'm back from the studio, ready to theorize somemore! Wow! What a thread! This is great! I didn't even think I'd get much of a response. A quick note to Tony--I requested that my application not be published. Sadie--I don't know if you read my last posting to Kitty--I have filed for a patent on ...

Okay, One more post and then I'm really going to get to work--you guys were so right about the topic keeping me out of my studio! Thanks Rob, for your comments. Doug's a great guy and does beautiful work! Because I think this way, his work reminds me of quilts. Well time to get back to work! I'm pre...

Excellent points Jackie! And exactly what I was hoping to hear!

Hi All! I'm so pleased to get such varied input, as my mind has struggled with all these issues. Perhaps my pending patent has already served it's purpose! But as far as an "obvious" technique goes, I'm curious what the examiner will bring up, as I've never seen glass joined in the way I've develope...

Hi Kitty, You touched on another tender spot for me--in my little vaccuum world, galleries should be helping artists protect their ideas and not sell knock-offs like they do. There are so many good, fresh ideas and artists out there....Once I saw one of the organizers of BMAC make a glassblower remo...

Hey Kitty! I appreciate your personal support! The patent office has had my application in examination an unusually long time--18 months--I don't know if that's good or bad! I'm looking forward to the first office action. I think I might get my patent attorney to help me with that step, but I filed ...

Thanks Brock and everybody for your input! What a patent would mean in my case is that others--in manufacturing or otherwise--could not make stuff that incorporated sewing panels together in the same manner that I do and ultimately make a product that could be confused with my work and technique. Of...

Ouch! Does smart business=evil artist?

Wow. Recent conversations with other artists about my patent pending process has made me question my worth as a good human being/nice artist! I'm secretly hoping for moral support here, but really, truly want honest feedback. I love creating work, but I can only continue to create if I sell it. No f...

I'm so excited! I actually know something that might help! I've been waiting for this moment....Okay, here goes. I use fiber glass to fire on all the time instead of fiber paper, and to get a cool fabric-like texture. However, to keep the glass from sticking, it has to be coated with a minimum of 2 ...

Hi Elaine, what brand of airbrush/compressor are you using? I've worked with enamels by hand, but would like to try airbrushing. Is there a special sized tip or anything? I know nothing about airbrushes. Where did you buy yours? Thanks! S

Thanks for the info Beth. It sounds like you're well covered. Sorry to act so overworried! I've been disposing of my spend thinfire with a hepa vaccuum+filtering liner. I still wonder though. It's such sneaky stuff. S
