This, if stripped away is the same old conversation about "Art, Vs Craft". It's been going on for time immemorial. It's important so it can exclude people.

If you looked at the glass houses in "The glass gaffers of New Jersey "

( Adelle Pepper), you won't find any of that work extolled as art. It was instead a remarkable view into the migratory moves of glasshouse as they struggled with being allowed to do what they did given the pressure from the English Govt.

From my view, some incredible from the heart glass made by people who loved the material. Cap Wistar was probably the only one who had a longer term vision than " "Make what you Love".

Go do it. Not since "the Portland Vase" has the dichotomy been so clear.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?

I'm "deleting" my post here because it was not helpful, and/or kind.

Apologies for being so critical.
