The bidding audience I've seen at GAS are not usually glassblowers or slumpers although Bullseye did it's best to juice the membership with warm stuff. Many blue haired women I noticed, all hanging on Marvin when he was still alive. At one time, it did have an educational function but has long since been displaced by You Tube for technique. Craftweb displaced much tech material.

The donated work was usually marginal and sometimes downright embarrassing as people donated their very own knockoffs with out any finesse. Nominally, that auction brought about ten cents on the dollar.
I go to Corning for GAS and I do that for the museum and library largely.
