Re: Is anyone making any money ?

I graduated college with the idea of teaching sculpture and creating my art on the side. That was a big disappointment. Luckily, my father had introduced me to a trade, Plastic Injection Moldmaking, when I was 16. Luckily, I continued my apprenticeship part time with him as I was attending college and finished it in two years after college. It is that trade that supported my family for the next 50 yrs. I retired two years ago and started creating my Welded Steel Sculptures again. Since I do not have to depend on it for my living, any money that I make is used to add new equipment to my studio.
