    I am an ex sculptor, I enjoyed the work in timber and stone etc but the amount of time involved in each piece made it impossible to set a reasonable price.
    I have gone to glass and purchased a kiln etc, based on the fact that float glass is cheap. Sure i will be using dichoric from time to time and spectrum glass.
    The market here in australia is mainly weekend fairs, which i have done before but with other products. most market sales are $5-$50 max. Any suggestions

    In the UK at the moment fairs are just not cutting it, for me any way. Next year apart from some local ones to sell off old stock I am concentrating on my website. Most people now are disillusioned with fairs both on the visiting and exhibiting route it is getting harder. Try to find something small to make that is niche this could then become your bread and butter with larger pieces for a considered buy.

    I agree with Caroline, right now I feel it is entirely unique (what you excel at) and web based sales.
