I participate in art and craft shows, in the late fall at the height of the gift buying season, because I enjoy and thrive on the interaction with customers. I take pleasure in observing the reactions to my work, listening to people discuss their favorite stones, color combinations or designs as they consider what pieces would be perfect for which gift recipient or themselves. Not only are they taking in the work with their eyes, but frequently touching and enjoying the tactile experience of mosaics. I tune into their reactions, what makes them feel good or what memories the pieces might evoke. Later, I process my observations and let them help guide me in my future work.
Visit me 12/1/11 – 12/4 /11 at the One of a Kind Show and Sale Chicago, booth 29 in the Etsy Pavilion. To receive a complementary ticket (good for 2) visit oneofakindshowchicago.com and enter promotion code APC11.
