the BUSINESS of ART //

A fine arts major with a business minor, that was me.  I have always felt that if i could make beautiful works of art and not write a contract or negotiate a deal, what good was it?  i did not want someone speaking for me, i wanted to have my own work represented by my voice and drive.  Here at the studio i pride myself in "the business of art" where I  take negotiations and contracts as seriously as I do the hand of my craft.  

Transparency //

Everyone, everyday is the goal for my wares and while it is really difficult to achieve because of the details and work that goes in, it remains a priority.  Work is priced according to the materials used, the number of times it passes through my hands for refinement, the time that went into the artwork and the number of firings.  Primary classic work is available for wholesale- restaurant & retail.  My signature and more ornate pieces are available online and locally at the studio in downtown St. Augustine.  Work takes about 4-8 weeks to make depending on the current workload.  Pieces that are ready to ship can be purchased on ETSY.  For wholesale inquiries and product information: orders.abdstudio@gmail.com
