I love the short films in the New York Close Up series produced by art21.
As I was watching Mariah Robertson Wears a Yellow Suit to Work I was struck by Robertson’s acceptance of the fact that one day she would no longer be able to use the same materials because they would cease being manufactured. It was just a fact – nothing to get upset about.
Have you ever used a material that you could no longer get a hold of?
What would you do if they stopped making a certain kind of paint, paper, dye, glaze, . . . ?
Many jewelers are now in a pinch because of the high price of precious metals. If you’re a jeweler, how has that affected what you make?
