All the cheese I can eat

There’s profit, and then there’s profit.

For example, I have my work on display at a local cheese shop in Philadelphia. The owner uses one of my cups as a little tip jar, uses vases and other pieces in his front window display and includes mugs in his holiday gift baskets.

He doesn’t sell many, but they make the shop a little nicer. And when he does sell a piece, I don’t get cash.

I get cheese.

He recently sold a vase for around $40, and now I am up to my elbows in delicious brie, creamy goat cheese and savory cheddar. His shop is around the corner from the studio, so whenever I get hungry I can go over and he cuts me a hunk of whatever is freshest and fills up a bag with baguette slices. I couldn’t ask for better!

  2. This weekend before my biking/camping trip, I grabbed a few things from the fridge as I headed out the door. One happened to be an “earthy and intense” brie that when I opened it, was slightly melted, oozing all its wonderful goodness out for me to savor, moaning to my campmates who, happily (to me) disliked an intense and earthy brie.


  3. I love it when two worlds come together to create happy contentment!! Hmmmmm, is this an example of an evolving symbiotic relationship???? LOL!!
