About

Blaise Gauba is more than a sculptor

I think most artists and creative types are more than just what they might have been labeled or pigeon-holed as. Maybe this goes for all people. I started this Esty.com Shop page because the listing fees are very fair. Ebay takes a huge chunk of your sales. And for someone like me who is producing an incredibly small amount of "product", every penny I make counts. I wanted a place where artists and craftspeople and creative types could gather and share ideas and Etsy is the place. Yes, there are other websites that offer something similar, but who take much larger chunks of your possible income.

I wanted to be able to share my art and designs as products with people and still keep my prices reasonable. Would I like to sell more so I can earn more? Of course. This shop that I started has been sort of a laboratory for me as a first time business owner. I have had that silly mantra in my head for years that because I am an artist...that I am also not a business person and therefore, because I know nothing about running a business...I therefore cannot run a business. And yet, I see thousands of artists around the world making a living working for themselves. Ultimately, that has been my dream...my goal. So far, I am not anywhere NEAR earning enough money from this business to do anything except try and keep up with production costs...and I am actually not even doing that.

Will people purchase my hand crafted products if I raise the prices to what they should be so I can pay the production costs AND make a profit as well? I don't see very many sales when I raise the prices to the appropriate levels, so I keep my prices artificially low just so customers or potential clients will be attracted to buying what I am offering. I am an artist...I have to create art. Otherwise, why am I here? Can I make money doing it? Well, that's why I am here.
