Why Fire Goddess retires her Wonderful Creations?
It is a very tough world for artists-especially American artists. At every turn, at every show, and almost every day Fire Goddess is challenged by the ever-present theft by Chinese, Indian, and other Asian production facilities abroad that buy one of our items or download the image and then mass-produce a cheap lead filled knock-off. It is painful to say but in recent years we have even experienced knock-off and duplication by American hobbyists who will do anything to make an easy dollar off the hard work of true and authentic creating artists. This hurts our quality brand and steals revenue from the original designer; Susan Barnes.
