The same can be said for fusers, casters, and non traditional stained glass. Good, big, or blue, doesn't seem to cut it at this time.
Is the traditional brick and mortar Gallery model even relevant anymore? Most of the larger collectors I know may attend gallery shows but buy the bulk of their purchases online anyway.
