The single best thing I ever did for my art
Sarah Bush

Totally agreed, ‘ya gotta follow your ‘muse’, wherever it leads. Went thru a similar ‘re-assessment’ a few years ago while seeking to get out of the ‘2-D’ constraints of working in porcelain enamel, fired onto large (flat) pieces of metal, which also tended to relegate it to the ‘painting’ category in galleries and commissions. So started paying experienced metalsmiths to fabricate the kinda “3D” stuff I imagined, but soon found I enjoyed working with metal and the material itself so much, that I began learning the welding and shaping skills to do it myself. Which eventually would lead to the much more profitable enameled, 3D kinetic work that I really enjoy doing now!
