I'm stumped. Banjaxed.
In May, I officially become an Old Aged Pensioner.
(despite Pamela Jean insisting that I will joint the ranks of Senior Citizens )
And rather than while away my time, twiddling my thumbs, waiting for God, I am pursuing a plan to make myself useful to the wider community by producing what they want, and charging them exorbitantly large sums of money for doing so.
In short, I intend during the remainder of 2012, to establish a small business, internet based as to customer, producing what I'm good at. Working with timber. Turning; carving; artwork framing.
In addition, I also would like to include some of my own photography, for sale. I have sold several pieces already. (I suspect that they sold because they look better framed, than merely as a print, but ...)
My intention is to offer bespoke items, be they turnings, furniture, carvings. or what I am really looking forward to experimenting with, unique ornate picture frames, incorporating turnings and carvings, in exotic hardwoods, and polished rather that encapsulated with an artificial covering.
I love doing Grinling Gibbins type carvings. Figures; violins; bunches of leafy grapes; ropes; animal heads; etc
And elaborate artwork mounts, too.
In short, renaissance style, museum sized, picture frames.
Such that customers buy the artwork, to discard; because what they want is the mount and the frame.
I am, at the moment, in the process of designing a website.
A friend is going to build it for me.
And I'm stumped. Banjaxed.
I can't think of a name for my website.
I want the name to incorporate the unique turning; carving; framing and artwork aspect of my work.
If anyone is imaginatively and innovatorily good at this sort of thing, I would be delighted to to receive a PM from you. And if your suggestion is adopted, there may even be a small case of quality plonk available
But pleeeease don't delay: because it is driving me mad !!
PS: All silly suggestions will be posted in the most embarrassingly appropriate forum on ePz
