A dying breed?
As a person who makes and occasionally sells holloware, I have often encountered the prevailing attitude that making holloware is not a practical way to make a living in this day and age because it is too time-consuming to produce and people will not pay for it. But today I received the most recent edition of Goldsmith Magazine and it included a link to British Silver Week-2010.
This is evidently a show entirely of people making (and selling!) silver holloware. There were some really lovely pieces and above are a few of my favorites.
I guess there are still people out there doing the hard stuff!
