I have decided not to give in to commercialism by creating, in mass production form, 50 of each style, kind and variety. Instead I am finding that it is best to continue creating and designing new prototypes each time and not give a whodilly rats ass if they will be liked or not by the public – this means you. It is all too easy to give in to that urge to create what you think people would like to see. Thoughts fly through my head… maybe I should cut out ten of these and create them all the same so I have some backstock in case they sell well… Well you know what? Screw that. I have a day job. My brain likes to make new things by acting on the brief whim of a new idea. Too much of what I actually do for ‘work’ requires me to sacrifice my own creativity for money and that’s not what this new craft movement is about, that’s what ‘work’ is about. It’s time to make things how we want them to be and hope that there will be a few souls out there that will appreciate you just because of that.
