No, it's not that the number of test bowls we have lined up is hard on my eyes. I just attended a day long conference on Craft and the New Economy at OCADU in Toronto. The presenters were good although mostly not makers but academics. What would a maker know about making a living in a new economy, a changing economy or any economy?
One of the presenters had a 45 minute opportunity to show his work. WT hey? These prima donnas think we all pay to see more about them. We paid to get information about a new or changing economy. The classic " I" or "eye" problem is soooooooo prevalent with those that have tenure track positions. When asked to do a presentation at a conference I would show a couple of pics of my work and address the topic I was paid to present.
