Seems I have stirred a hornets nest again with the signature soapbox of mine!   8)

What about the scenario though where a glass artist (or studio for that matter) has a specific mark (maybe an odd implement lying around, like the IOW coach bolt) that can be used to put a mark on less than perfect items that don't merit signature?  Maybe an X after their initials?   >:D

Because, as Leni says,  although the purist collectors may want the specifically signed pieces, for their investment value, others may just find the pieces beautiful in their own right, but like to know who made them and where they came from.

(steps down momentarily)

Oh, I wasn't implying that the IOW coach bolt implied second quality btw... just as an example of a possible implement for pushing quickly into a bit of glass....

And I do have some pieces of your work which are not signed, because you considered them to be less than prefect, whereas I consider them to be quite delightful!  :D  So I think we need to be aware that sometimes an artist may not sign a piece, simply because they do not consider it a good enough example of their work for them to 'own' it, while a collector may find it a perfectly acceptable piece of art glass (or glass art!  ::))  You artists can be such perfectionists!  :-*  ;)

I think I know which pieces you mean! But I have changed my policy since you got those, because I am concerned that unsigned pieces can later be fraudelently signed with another name and mis-represented. So now the pieces you describe are all signed either A Aaronson X, or Aaronson Noon Studio X, or sometimes Adam Aaronson Collection X, or something similar.

The significance of the X has a double-entendre. It could mean the piece is irregular and has something wrong with it, at least from my outlook, but an X is also a kiss and the kiss is to kiss it goodbye and also a kiss for the purchaser to say thank you, because we couldn't survive if people didn't buy those pieces that we perfectionists downgrade!! ;D

These pieces represent incredible value as they are usually priced very keenly. In fact we are planning a mega sale around the end of June, so if anyone needs the dates, I'll have them finalised shortly. We have recently upgraded the presentation in the gallery and just don't have any more room in the shed!! :)

Much better idea would be to make some more and sign them Lynne X and call them Lynne's Kisses and then you could sell them for me ;D
