it takes a village

I'm an artist. And a craftsman. Not a factory worker.   

And I like it that way,

Not only because of the artistic freedom, but also because working with people is immeasurably more rewarding than working at them. Besides, the friendships that develop are a great joy.

So, orders and commissions are collaborative. Every creation is a world unto itself.  


But pricing is still a pain in the far-side-of-away-over-yonder.
