Strut your stuff!
« on: September 17, 2006, 09:22:14 AM »

We have lots of creative types around here...thought it would be fun to have a thread where people can post their art, photos, what have you \:D/

  And because Wa2c has been nagging me to do this... ;)

Here's some of my crap;

Mosaic window "7 Fish;"



Lamp shades in progress:



Finished lamp:



Ceramic relief panel thing:




And finally, the piece of art that has gotten the best viewer response ever:



Hope you enjoy!  Now someone else post their art quick so I don't feel like such a tool.... ;)

This was my attempt at Andy Warhol-ing a picture of grlanachronism from the woxy boards.



Sorry, that's all I got.

Your glass work is gorgeous, BoW. Do you make it for fun or do you sell it? (or both)

I totally agree. It all looks fantastic, particularly the window mosaic.

I agree.  Do you have a website or anything where you sell or stuff?

Nice work, Bride!

Not too shabby on the Photoshop job either, Dan.

Gosh you guys  :wub:
Yes, I do sell stuff. Last year I sold 2 of the agate-slab lamps at the Dayton Visual Arts Center's Art to Buy program.  This year I missed the deadline and don't have any ready anyway  :-(   They take forever.

The base on the lamp was made by our friend Chris (some of you might remember as the 'awesome roommate' from the 'welcome back woxy' bash.)  He does coppersmithing.

I have only sold one of the mosaic windows.  I tend to make stuff to sell and then cling to it instead #-o

I would be interested in getting some sort of website or place I could show stuff and sell it but not sure what the best venue would be.  Any suggestions?  (and not myspace)

Also the stuff is heavy and fragile.  Arg.  Shipping is a nightmare.  Any suggestions welcome.

And yeah, I will do stuff on commision....PM me here at awesome Randomville.com!

And all of my senses on overdrive

You could do something like www.etsy.com.

Yeah, I know a couple people who sell stuff on etsy and they're pretty happy with it.  

I know Epeolatry/postfem uses etsy, so you could check with her.

Best response?  Image removed?  Even I don't know what this was.   ???
