I received a request for a small wire sculpture recently. The request was based on a similar piece of my work installed at a cafe. The request was very clear and very specific. There are times when artist freedom is at play and work for sale is sold on a 'there it is, hope you like, and buy it' basis. Other times, a request like 'do you have that in purple' can be challenging and even irritating. Not this time. The customer is requesting a piece that is specific to her family, and she wishes it to reflect their friendships and reality of the present. She knows what she wants. It's a fair request. Work is underway. Results not in yet. Report to follow. A good challenge.
