Glass/Cash Survey

Postby DonMcClennen » Sun Jun 03, 2018 5:00 pm

In the just published "New Glass Review#39" there is quite an extensive survey of $ earnings for those in various fields involving glass eg: artists, business, industry, etc. The detailed summary report will be interesting to many here on this board. My initial take away is: this, generally is not a very lucrative occupation/pastime. A very very few make a decent amount of $ that would support a comfortable lifestyle.
For those interested in reading the full report my copy of Review 39 came with the latest copy (summer 2018 No 151) of The UrbanGlass Quarterly. #-o

Glass has always been a hobby for me that happens to make a little money on the side. However, with the exception of very few that describes art in general. Few of us become Dale Chihuly or Damien Hirst (god forbid), but if we can make Cool we can make a little money.

Amazingly inconsistent income- fat years, lean years.

I saw something the other day about about making it as an artist. I think it was a book, and I thought I downloaded it, but I can't find it so I guess I didn't :).

Anyway, the first point of advice was, "don't quit your day job".
