Question by Absinthy: Where can I get a job sculpting for a living?
I’m a graphic artist in Salem Oregon who has always loved to work with my hands creating sculptured gifts for my friends and family. Everyone says I should be sculpting for a living, or should start up my own business. I would love to work in the sculpting industry, but where do you even look for job listings? I’ve checked out sculptor.org, they rarely have anything for actual job listings.
It seems like a field that is more ghost than substance. Everything leads to resources, but never to actual JOBS.
Any tips anyone can suggest? (and please, no plain resource sites, or organization sites . Found way too many resources, and too few actual job listings)
Answer by anvilsandinkstudiosI hire people to do work for me and my studio. We do everything from fine metal sculpting to large sculptures. My current employee, Mindi, does metal embossing, jewelry and works on my larger works with me. Before Mindi, I had Annie, she is working in Colorado now in her own shop.
