Craft originally implied a cunning power - what Margaret Visser called "skill, strength and intelligence all rolled into one". I have often heard the phrase- "one who knows their craft" in relation to an artist. This is my lifelong desire- to continually explore and refine my craft. Recently I was given an assignment- create a list of valuables- things that you may have to include on a insurance policy. Then recreate that valuable using materials that are not valuable. Here is my valuble-bauble necklace made from soda cans, plastic beads and wire. Aesthetic arguments would say there is use of balance, color, rhythm, pattern and unity to create this work. Question is- how much is the market value for this piece? It took as long to make it as if I made it from gold and silver- but because of the material- what could I charge? Responses encouraged.
