The recession is killing the creation of plasma sculpture

Sadly it's been 10 months since I have had any reason to post about plasma sculpture. No new work is apearing on the scene, please, please prove me wrong but I beleve the ressisson is killing this art form.

Plasma is an amazing, brilliant and expensive art form, did i say expensive? I appears that only the very rich are continuing to work in this medium, sadness. All of my plasma contacts, have simply stopped producing and are focusing on whatever makes them money to get by.

We need to find a way for this art from to return and thrive. All suggestions are welcome....

we are still out there, but you're right, it's expensive, and plasma is hard to sell. Especially here in Australia ... I haven't sold a single sculpture ... ever ... so I write my interest off as an expensive hobby and my own dirty little indulgence. I wish it wasn't so :(
But we are still out there, in the basements and the sewers, dealing in plasma until the wee hours of the morning, so don't despair quite yet! :)
