If you are going to survive in this field (art)....... you need to develop a thick skin on the rejections.  You'll have scads of them.

 

Every rejections gets you closer to an acceptance.

 but I don't like some stuff enough to sell it

 

 

I've learned not to rule out items.  Let the customer decide that.

In the past I have taken pieces to shows that I'm not thrilled about. I have such a tough time selling them. I think customers can sense my true feelings about those pieces. Now I try hard to recognize the disappointing pieces while they can still be recycled back into clay.
