Updates on orders and contact

posted Feb 8, 2017, 11:42 AM by Morgan McGrath

First, and most importantly I want to send out a big thank you to everyone who has contacted me to tell me how much they love my glasses and inquire about how to order them. Thank you to everyone who has left comments, thank you all for the post shares and likes and any other form of encouragement I am leaving out. This support is like oxygen to an artist, it helps us to thrive, and it is so very much appreciated! I don’t have the words to express how very much this means to me (and to all artists!).

Now, with all of that, why is my response rate so terrible you ask? I promise it is not out of lack of appreciation! It seems all this activity seems to happen in waves, and one factor is that I get easily overwhelmed. When you suddenly have 50 messages, where do you even start?

I am not currently taking orders, even though I would love to make glasses for each and every inquiry - I love my work going to someone who will treasure it, that is such a large part of what makes art meaningful for me. Unfortunately, at least for the next year, I cannot figure out a way to  squeeze art into my schedule (With career, grad school, etc, I am lucky to get 5-7 hours of sleep a night, I literally have no down time ><). A set of glasses can easily take 5+ hours (sometimes much more!).

All glasses pictured have already been sold, gifted or donated, and many were custom orders. When I am taking orders, I can always do similar claywork to a previous creation, but the glass itself is subject to what I am able to find, which makes recreating a specific glass sometimes very challenging.

Thank you again to everyone for all of your interested and support! You all are awesome!!
