I recalled the first piece I sold when I opened my etsy shop, when I was creating art solely from this process. And others I made during that time frame.
Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed making pieces requested by others. I get a great sense of staisfaction from that challenge. Here are some of those projects...
"Celtic Knots" Cabinet Door
Old Church Glass from Braddock PA...reborn...
Braddock Church glass corner rebuilt
Braddock PA zip code
After having this revelation, I hauled out a bunch of "scrap" glass left from other projects, and purchased directly from the scrap bin at my local glass shop. I can't help it, for me it's all about color and texture! I proceeded to do what I love. Here are a couple things I came up with...
I also realized that sales in my etsy shop have dropped since I, for reasons unknown, moved away from following my creative desire and started making stuff because I thought it was what would sell or it took less time to make. Regardless of the outcome in sales, I'm determined to continue making what moves me.
