sharing your world

mary jane dodd



this beautiful short film - for i refuse to call it a video - was shared with me by a friend... meet tosca hidalgo y teran - who also happens to be a fellow etsy seller... 


her work is beautiful, complex, insightful and intelligent... while her detailed descriptions share the depth of her knowledge, inquiry and vision - this film has made her unforgettable to me... 

when selling your work, the 'hows' and 'whats' - the nuts and bolts of the piece - are necessary to explain... value obviously increases when more complex techniques, more expensive materials, greater skill are employed with higher levels of proficiency... and while i love to read about what one has put into their work & may marvel at the execution, it is the 'whys' that cement people in my brain and heart... they draw me in so i feel connected... i want to understand why specific choices were made, why there are important to the creator... 

to read more about tosca ... and etsy.tv

and thank you renate for always sharing things of interest and beauty with me... you keep me dreaming and striving...

This is exactly what I was trying to express in my survey comment on this blog. Its what I feel about your pieces that I own.

It doesn't surprise me that Tosca finds her mode of expression in metal and glass. I'm sure the flame of the torch mesmerizes and hypnotizes her into her expressive zone. An amazing visual profile.

I was not at all aware of the Etsy.tv (yes, it's a film to me). I *loved* the two artists you have introduced us to in your post, and can totally see why they strike a chord with you. Thank you for sharing *your* world with us, Mary Jane. I'm inspired by so many facets of this.
