Jackie are you suggesting that the challenge is to create the opposite of our usual intent/message with the opposite of our usual methods? Or to try to communicate our usual intent/message with tools and methods opposite from what we usually use? Barbara Hi Barbara, My original goal was to have peo...

Rodney, I am pretty sure that a 10% collector's discount is fairly standard at most of the top notch galleries. However, as I stated before, that's not Marty's problem to deal with. I don't see how it benefits him in a retail/show setting the same way it would a gallery, unless of course it is a col...

OK - this is good - we're getting somewhere with this. Brad, if people are planning to donate their "Alter" piece to the WGW Auction, (I think most are, no?) by what date do you want them, or do you even want them sent to you? If not, where do they need to go? So far, these are the people who have s...

Do you ever think maybe you guys have too much time on your hands? Apparently so. My husband just came in and wondered if there was any chance I could get paid by the hour for my time spent here. He started out hoping for $50 an hour, skimmed through what I wrote and ended up walking out of the roo...

Don, there is nothing wrong with 'just making beautiful things'. There's nothing wrong with making revolting, disturbing things either. Why would one choose to make one over the other? Their feelings, their intent, their emotions at the moment - whatever you want to call it. Or in your case, the cho...

I've turned away far too many artists at the gallery whose intent was admirable but whose work was really bad and not anywhere near gallery ready. Dani, you misunderstood what I was saying. I never said that intent without any of the other elements that make up a piece is worthy. Obviously substand...

The notion of 'trying to get my point across' bugs me. To imply that we can separate artwork into components of intent, process, formal elements, sentiment, intent, and material...and then rank the sentimental intent higher (more valuable or significant) than the object as craft is ....its what wro...

Amended Challenge

Per suggestion, I moved this thread from the classified section. (How did it even start in classified, I wonder?) Anyway, if you have been following the discussion that starts on page 2 of the recycled bottle thread, I've moved it - it's changed too much to be over there. Below is my last post in th...

That's one of the things Dennis says when he's trying to pick a fight - he can't possibly believe it.

Marty, From what I understand, Brock is totally right about this. The common 10% collectors discount is to come out of the gallery's share. Your contract should state that you get 50% (or whatever you've agreed on) of the retail price. If they choose to give a collector's discount, or any discount f...

How odd Steve that you just happen to have that handy to post! You truly are a font of information! That will help Kelly far more than any explaination.

One more suggestion: put the scraps in a large flower pot, prop it up like a pot melt, and fire to around 1650F. You'll get a 1/4" inch, round, piece of clear glass. Enlarging the hole in the bottom of the pot will make this go faster, and it'll help to have access to a sandblaster to help clean up...
