It was kinda pricey sending the NY piece. But I had them package it up, and that added a lot to the cost. I couldn't do it myself, and when there's that much glass at risk of being shattered, it's enough to scare me into paying extra. Nothing makes you hate the world (and the postal system) like hearing that the artwork you sent to some gallery got damaged in transit.
Why risk it?
Anyway, now I am starting the last piece for a show in Portland.
