Yesterday a lovely student of mine gave me an even lovelier note. We do not know who the author is, however it is so lovely I will have to share it with you.
Should you happen to know who the original author is, please do let me know.
When buying from a HAND MAKER,
you are buying more than just an OBJECT
You are buying hundreds of hours
of failures and experimentation.
You are buying days, weeks and months
of frustration and moments of PURE JOY.
You aren’t buying a THING
you are buying a piece of heart,
part of a soul, a moment of someone’s life.
Most importantly, you’re buying
the artist more time to do something
the artist is passionate about.
Thus enabling the artist
to create more beautiful things.
Need I say more?
