HOW DO YOU SET YOUR PRICE POINT?
Talking with the gallery owners has been incredibly helpful. And then looking at what other people are getting. I have tried keeping track of my hours before but some of it is just a gut feel. Prices are really difficult that way.
DO YOU PRICE ACCORDING TO TIME OR ACCORDING TO SIZE?
I would say both and a lot of times those two go together, like a bigger piece will usually take me a lot longer. I think with my work the labor is probably the biggest factor.
DO YOU CHANGE YOUR PRICING WHEN YOU ARE SELLING IN YOUR OWN SHOP AS OPPOSED TO A GALLERY?
I keep them pretty similar.
A lizard because they climb over rocks so amazingly. But I’m also thinking I am loving kayaking lately so maybe some kind of aquatic animal.
