I find it really hard to focus on making just one thing.
At 'Origin' last week I realised that nearly all the stands were selling just one thing. The maker has an idea and then makes it and hones it and keeps producing that one special-to-them item.
At Art school today it seems to be about coming up with your 'concept' your unique-to-you idea that you can exploit and charge the maximum price for because no-one else is making it in quite the same way. This must be very frustrating for the artist. Creative people are ideas people aren't they? They want to experiment and always be trying to create new things. To demonstrate their 'take' on the world. Not their take on just one solitary thing.
